Details:
Tonight I witnessed one of the best Northern Lights displays that I've ever seen, and I mean EVER in over 5000 hours on the ice. It was, in short, truly spectacular and something that will live with me for a lifetime. In fact, at one point, I stopped taking images completely and simply lay on my back in the snow staring upwards, mesmerised by the awe-inspiring light-show that was unfolding before my very eyes. Equipment: Canon EOS 5D MkII camera, Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 1000, Aperture 2.8, Shutter Speed: 2.5s - 15s.
