Northern lights are light emissions from atomic and molecular Oxygen and Nitrogen in the atmosphere that are being ionized by solar wind particles.
This is a re-edit from a shot I took earlier this year. Those sort of things are hard to edit, because they have to be shot at high ISO (which makes it hard to work with and preserve all the fine tones and color nuances) and because I feel like one should really try to nail the colors as they appear "on location".
Comments of all sorts are - as always - highly appreciated!
