The Aurora

Terje Sorgjerd spent four years looking to create a time lapse of the aurora borealis (AKA northern lights), then finally flew two hours north from Norway and spent a week capturing one of the biggest displays in recent years. As you will see, the final result is absolutely jaw-dropping!
