19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Steps under the lights.

This photograph was taken in Finland, at 69º North, after a long wait. The northern lights are a special phenomena. You cannot race it. Once everyone was tired of waiting for the lights in such a cold environment, they finally appeared, only for a couple of minutes. Enough to capture this moment.
