There is something special about the night sky in Abisko and, when the sun comes up, the spectacular landscape in Abisko National Park. From the reflection of the aurora in Lake Torneträsk to the mountains that surround it, the eagles that soar in the sky to the reindeer that roam the hillsides, there is a huge amount to photograph here.
