Somewhere in Sweden

Teepee and aurora.
I recently went to Abisko in Swedish Lapland on a photography trip hunting the Northern Lights.  To add to the adventure I travelled from Stockholm to Abisko by train, a 20 hour trip on the SJ night train!

See my Somewhere in Sweden flickr set for more.

Getting warm in the teepee whilst waiting for the aurora, it was only -25 degress C outside

"This train is now crossing the Arctic Circle" - a video of the SJ Train guard announcement.  Don't have the sound too loud.
