    I shot this image of the Aurora on my first trip to Arctic Norway in March 2013; a truly stunning place and the chance to see the aurora makes it irresistible. Witnessing the Aurora is so special and surreal and in this image it appears as a face or skull looking down on the world.

    A really great picture, I have always wanted to see this. It just makes me want to see it even more in it's physical beauty. Thank Yiu so much Mr. Gorton for your expertise, and for sharing this with us.

    How I envy you the opportunity to see and photograph the aurora. I went to Norway last year and loved it, but I was there in the spring. I wasn't quit brave enough to face a Scandinavian winter! Congratulations on a wonderful photo and being an editors choice.
