You can imagine yourself sitting out there in freezing temperatures feeling truly privileged watching this immense natural show taking place before your unbelieving eyes.
Yet for Andrew Machon photographing auroras can be a much less romantic, and much more stressful, experience requiring night after night spent waiting for those unpredictable moments - and then capturing them before they disappear.
We think it was all worth it because it makes for an elegant and wonderfully distinctive scarf (but then it wasn't us sitting out there night after night!).
We also think Andrew's years of dedication and investment in cutting edge photographic equipment (as well as months spent in the Arctic Circle) to produce these Northern Lights images compares favourably with Richard Weston’s with minerals. Thus the name for this scarf.
