Norwegian Aurora

During a trip around Norway, Finland, and Sweden in January I proposed to my soon to be wife under this amazing display of Northern Lights. The bonus of proposing under the Aurora is that even if you get a negative response, at least you get to be awed by the lights above. The red cabin in the picture was just a house nearby, but provides a great foreground to the picture, which I took 5 minutes after my fiancee said 'Yes'. What a romantic!
