Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2019: Aurora is a Bird print
"For several years I have come to the ruins of this military hydroelectric station to photograph the site (like an old fortress) alongside the aurora. This old station is two hours away from Murmansk so I can’t often go there. I returned in September 2018 with the hope of making this shot. The Kp auroral forecast indicated that the aurora would be south of me, which I estimated to be in this location. Fortunately, everything turned out well."
