Aurora Borealis Images by Stian Skogvang-Melbye

To celebrate the Winter Solstice bringing the return of the sun to the northern hemisphere, and to close out 2015 with incredible beauty and peace, I am privileged to be allowed to share a few Aurora Borealis images made by an Instagram friend and Aurora Photographer, Stian Skogvang-Melbye currently living in Trondheim, Norway.

I am not going to interrupt the quiet wonder of Stian's images with words - other than Stian's description of where they were taken.

To see more of Stian's magical Aurora images, you can find Stian's gallery here on Instagram, or search stianworld 

The image above taken at Skarsfjorden, Trondheim, Norway is one of my very favorites and one of Stian's favorites.

A magical night in Trondheim, Norway. Beautiful lights reflecting is still water and hints of aurora in the sky.
