MedTech is my work - photography provides a creative outlet I can fit in around everyday life, holidays and work. Over the last 15 years I've taken a lot of photo's, binned most of them, observed, read, saved up and gradually improved.

About this picture

This is the aurora from Flakstad beach on the Lofoten Islands. You do have to be pretty lucky to have clear skies and aurora in March but we got lucky!! The exposure was 30 seconds with the camera on a tripod just above the ground, dodging the incoming waves on the beach to try and get some reflection off the wet sand. The Lofoten Islands are one of the most amazing places on earth. A photographers paradise :-)
