    I've learned a lot doing this assignment and tried out some new things that have pushed me out of my comfort zone. In the winter, shooting at night is second nature as we are Aurora Chasers but for some reason with infinite daylight, coming up with unique photos seemed more challenging. We chased insects around the botanical gardens, and birds around the Arctic Slope but I keep coming back to this image of my wife and best pal Angus watching the Solstice Sunset as we tried to capture it.

    We had many midnight sun pictures submitted – but none as good as this one in Alaska. This image does what a good picture should – it makes us want to be in that moment.
