I didn't know that corona and polar light together are such a rare event when I was there last march. So I guess this was more luck than winning the lotterie especially as it was my first week of holiday ever to watch polar lights.
For me the -32 C wasn't that big of an issue. More for the camera equipment. The cable of my remote release was frozen to a hard stick so I was able to hold my remote release horizontally in the air and the shutter of my 5D2 begun to move much slower as I knew it before.

@My friend surapon.
It is really worth the experience beeing in such conditions. It' s not necessarily important to bring the really good photos back from there. I can recommend to you, to go to such a place one time in your life. I especially like the cold air for their cleanliness and freshness.

Here you can watch more of my pictures that I have taken during the week at lake Menesjärvi:

I feel for you guys.....

We are a lot more used to it up here.... I usually have to go shovel off the roof a few times per winter to keep the snow load down.... makes for some good piles of snow..

The first picture is the view out my kitchen window....
The second picture is the view out the patio window onto the raised deck...
The third picture is my comfy little house....

This year has been colder than normal, but we haven't gotten much snow...

Dear Don Haines,
I think you beat us here, but, this is not bragging rights. Some people have it very hard.
I just experienced a lot of snow falling from the roof, we just installed some solar panels and the slippery surface just don't hold snow back snow like regular shingles. Thankfully, it came down in 3 batches and not in one. The deck may have a hard time with a single dump.

That's why I rake my roof off once there is more than 18 inches of snow on it.... if it came down at once it would crush the deck... Call me weird, but I like snow....strap on the snowshoes and you can go anywhere.... Up here, we are used to it and equipped to deal with it. They don't even bother to cancel school for a two foot snowfall...

Here's a few from several years ago.... the last canoe trip of the year, scanned from kodachrome slides...

Dear Don,
Different strokes for different folks.
I think I'm an armchair person.
But, I have to say, you have more fun!
I like the pic of you prepping the canoe, the image gave me impression of anticipation.

In Singapore we dont have a great deal of Snow & Ice, so we need to chase it down, always an enjoyable experience as the amount of time your subjected to ball freezing weather is generally controlled.

Images were taken of our North Pole trip in 2009 on the "50 Years of Victory" these were taken in Franz Joseph Land about the mid way point between Murmansk & the North Pole. And our 2012 trip on the "Klebnikov" when we did a 6 week semi circumnavigation of Antarctica.
