Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2020: Painting the Sky A3 Print
"I was searching for clear skies in Finnish Lapland to capture the beauty of a polar night. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw what was waiting behind the clouds. Polar stratospheric clouds are something I have been searching for for many years and had seen only in photographs until that day. I took my camera onto a frozen river to get a good view and started to take photos. It took a while to find the right settings as I had no experience with photographing this. The clouds slowly changed their shape and colours. It was like watching someone painting, especially when the Sun was lower – it started to get a darker orange and the pink shades became stronger. I was totally mesmerized by these clouds and I could have watched them endlessly."
