Orcadia Borealis

Hm. Wide topic! February 2014 in Orkney was quite a month. Alive when night has come, and ghost the day. You do not meet with Lady Aurora easily at N59º and you’re often left with a shy touch of green only. But witnessing a bright and long tourmaline-like pillar in the sky makes you trying again and again. It pays off.
