Thank you all for positive feedback! Many go to Norway or Finland to photograph northern lights. But when the sun is active Estonia is also good place to be :)

They say that the winter is coming ;)

And this year it will be with very good chance to photograph the northern lights. If you happen to be in Estonia in winter time, come to Saaremaa and let´s go hunting!
