On a remote mountain plateu surrounded by small alpine birchtrees and a pitch black night sky. When the aurora exploded i tried to make it wrap around one of the trees. After countless failures...i finally succeded.
Equipment: Canon 5d, 16-35 2.8
Arild Heitmann, 34 year old landscapephotographer from Northern Norway. I was born and raised practically in the woods and the mountains. I`ve spent my entire life out in the wild, but it wasnt until 2008 that i started taking pictures on my adventures. This new interest quickly turned into something deeper and meaningful when i realized that i was able to get people to realize the incredible beauty that surrounds us in our daily life. Now i spend most of my time out in nature, constantly searching for new and inspirational scenes. One of my main projects are to shoot the magical Aurora Borealis in a way that most photographers seem to forget. To show it in its true beauty as part of a greater landscape.
