You won't see me post a sample image for this challenge, because I don't have any. And I envy those of you who do. Show me what you have. Might just convince me to go to Alaska again.

Shot in northern Sweden after the big summerstorm this year. The Red light is transmitted by a car nearby. Defenitely my coldest picture taken @ -27°C. A better camera would have better preserved the sharp lines in the auro and maybe some really amazing sparkles.
