Arctic night

Image shortlisted for Astronomy Photographer of the year 2014.

If someone asks what I remember most about this night my reply would be "brrrrrrrrrrr...... Cold". It was really cold, but it brought a really nice benefit, making the air so clear actually allowing to shoot the image in a way Id normally would not do and still come out pin sharp.
That and getting the milky way, the northern lights and the full moon in the image has made this one of my absolute best night time captures.
