The photographer: Chris Allan of Sacramento
Behind the lens: Seeing the Northern Lights was on my bucket list and we had read that this location (within 100 miles of the Arctic Circle) was an excellent place to be able to see them. We got lucky and bundled up in the minus-15 degree temperatures to observe this amazing natural phenomenon, which looked totally different every night. This photo was taken with a one-minute exposure.
