Ok course it's not a real aurora and it is not a night shot. I was away in the mountains because some friends were taking some photos and videos for a new sponsor. Perfect chance to get a shot for the challenge :)

And happy to have my new A7SII for a good score challenge! First of many I hope ;)


Thank you for your votes and comments! As for the title, I studied German ancient myths, so Yggdrasill was mentioned a lot of times in there. But surely I have been influenced by watching 3 seasons of the TV series Vikings :)

I love this, but prefer the "less cooked" version :)

Beautiful picture. My initial reaction was that this was a mythological subject but I was ignorant of the meaning of Yggdrasill, so I've been exploring Google. Thank you.
