Kvænangsfjellet is a hill in the region of Troms, in northern Norway, with an average elevation of 1,837 feet above sea level. It’s a very sparsely populated place. To get to the nearest town larger than 50,000 inhabitants takes about 21 hours by local transportation.

It’s not the most intense aurora display ever, but I really liked the combination between the ambient light from the small town, Oksfjord and the aurora itself. Combining those two with the cold night light you kinda get a complete palette with red, green and blue

Thank you Tor-Ivar!
