About three weeks ago me and the dog spent 5 cold hours on a hilltop enjoying the beautiful northern lights that danced across the sky.
Well, I was enjoying the show.
The dog found the whole thing tedious, "Why are we just standing here with the boring camera and not running around having fun?"
The evening resulted in about 700 pictures, some of which I put together into a short timelapse. Sadly I moved the camera a few times, so I only had about 170 pictures that could be put together. But at least I'm starting to figure this timelapse thing out.
One thing I could not figure out, was the best way of converting the file from MP4 to avi format. So if any of you out there can recommend a safe program for this, it would be much appreciated.
My phone does not want to accept the MP4-file, so I figured I'd share Lady Aurora's dance with you here. Do note that the northern lights did not move this quickly. If you slow the video down to 1/2 speed, it gives you a better idea of how it is to see this natural beauty in real life :)
And as always, remember to follow me on Instagram (@i_couldlivehere) to see all my pictures. I normally post every other day.

It's been a while since my previous post, but the headline pretty much sums up the last couple of months.
I was right on track with training for some serious mountain summits this summer when I got knocked out by the flu about 5 weeks ago. Since I didn't have the patience to sit around and wait, I started exercising far too early, resulting in the healing process to take forever. At least I'm finally able to start jogging again this week.
Over the past couple of weeks, I've had some amazing bouldering sessions with lots of improvements. And last week I did the first outdoor climbing of this year. We have some beautiful cags around the area where I live. Hopefully we'll get lots of nice weather this season, so that we can go enjoy them.
Lately we've had some spectacular northern lights too. Unfortunately the season is coming to an end now that the days are getting longer.
Wishing you all a wonderful week with lots of fun activities!
