    There's something mesmerising about watching a quiet night's starry sky being lit up by soft waving curtains of light. The Aurora Borealis is one of the most awe-inspiring natural events I have I ever been fortunate to witness, and one I would truly hope anyone could as well.

    Stunning landscape, Adriano. The northern lights have to be one of the most inspirational and awe-inspiring displays of nature. I'm glad you shot this wide to show the arc and ends of the lights, which brings the scene together.
