Thanks a lot for the nomination. We are very honoured.

This picture was taken on a valley intersection called Skarja in the immense, mountainous wilderness of Sarek National Park in Arctic Sweden. Leaving the warm nest in the tent for snapping 2AM norhtern lights pics in a breezy -25°C, is something on which some people would point with their finger to the sides of their head. But man, I am willing to make some shaking sacrifices for this spectacle.
