Hello.
My name is Benny Høynes. I was born in the summer of 1969.

I am an amateur photographer that loves take photos of the Northernlights (aurora borealis) and nature as well. I've created a How To Take Photos of Northern Lights guide, here on Wandering Educators.

I live in Sortland, in vesterålen in the northern part of Norway. We have tremendus landscapes, and good spots to shoot the magic northern lights, between August and April.
