Wow! Amazing! Incredible!

We’ve just returned from a wonderful cruise to the Arctic on board Marella Discovery. So many memories - it really was ‘the stuff that dreams are made of’

Thank you to all who came to David’s 4 talks - well 5 actually - he had to give the ‘Northern Lights’ talk a second time because the Venue was packed to overflowing.

We had great viewing of the night sky and a special thanks to Sohail ‘Mr Shooting Star’. Every time Sohail looked up he saw another meteor - and even caught one in his first Northern Lights photo! The weather was not too cold and we called it a night at 3am as the Northern Lights settled down for the night. The speed the lights changed was so fast.

Malcolm Coles captured the Northern Lights as the Sun had set - plus that white light - an effect caused by the reflection of light in the upper atmosphere

Some superb sunrise and sunset opportunities - David’s of a sunset coming away from Harstad

  • and the last photo taken by literally our ‘star’ photographer, Assistant Cruise Director Arann Smith. You have seen two of his photos already, but how about this one - Arann seen in front of the magical Northern Lights. Brilliant!

 How clever to set this fabulous picture up with the light painting to include Arann

Thank you to everyone who came along to David’s talks - it was wonderful to see the Venue full for each talk. Thank you for all the amazing comments along the way - quite overwhelming!

If you were on the cruise and would like some of the photos, just drop David an email and we will send those to you. Thank you again for making our cruise so special.
