Dream Green, winner of CVCEPHOTO “Mountain Activity” category 2017

Swedish photographer, David Wrangborg, who currently lives in Tromso went all the way to the top in the international photo contest CVCEPHOTO in San Sebastian in Spain. Wrangborg won in the category called “Mountain Activity” with his photo called “Dream Green” among 300 other photographers from 53 countries. The photo was taken in Kitdalen just outside Tromso in February earlier this year. The photo shows a snow covered mountain area that are being lit up by a spectacular aurora dancing above. You can also see light from inside the tent and a red shining horizon towards Tromso city.

-We were skiing in the area and had just made camp when this amazing aurora appeared above us. I hadn’t planned for any photo sessions, but I had my camera and my tripod with me, and it certainly came to good use this evening, Wrangborg says to newspaper iTromso.

Wrangborg won 1400 Euros for the photo and also got good comments from the judges on some of his other contributions to the contest. -It’s fantastic to get recognized for my photos, Wrangborg says.
