TROMSØ - INTO THE POLAR NIGHT
Tromsø - The Arctic Capital of the North and has around 75.000 inhabitants. Tromsø is situated at 69° Latitude and placed in the middle of the Aurora Oval. Tromsø is a perfect location to see the Northern Lights. Tromsø has become very popular, but for our photo tour however we will enjoy the less popular and unspoiled locations.
We will be situated around Tromsø for duration of this Arctic Light of Norway workshop.
As the sun will not rise during the end of November until mid January, we will enjoy the Polar Night and the lights around Christmas time.
Spectacular locations are in reach: majestic mountains, Fjords, Norwegian Houses, frozen rivers, lakes and water.
During the polar night, it will not be completely dark so we will have a good window to shoot the Norwegian landscapes. When the sky is clear and the Northern Lights come out, we definitely will chase the Northern Lights. This will be fun and I love to help you to capture this incredible beautiful phenomena.
The weather cannot be influenced, so we will make the best out of what is being presented during this Into the Polar Night workshop.
The photo tour is suitable for all photography skill levels.
Book this workshop early as it is limited to 3 participants only. This will give us good quality time to photograph and explore the locations. As I am fluent is in three language (English, German and Dutch) this should not hinder you from booking this photo tour.
