A keen astrophotographer, Mark has traveled to Iceland to capture the Northern Lights, but was not been able to see them as well as he did in Cornwall!
"Being out under the stars, listening to the waves and rhythmic click of my camera is amazingly relaxing, adventures in the dark trying to find the perfect spot to shoot give great memories and stories, each photograph I take has an adventure behind it."

Northern lights in Cornwall
We’re no strangers to a green flash as the sun-dips beyond the horizon, but witnessing the Northern Lights in North Cornish skies, made possible by crystal clear conditions, mesmerised star gazers with fuscia displays across the south of England.
