Northern lights

Northern lights. The Northern Lights are created as electrically charged particles from the Solar wind are pulled in toward the magnetic poles by the Earths magnetic field. As these particles collide with the atoms of gas in the ionosphere about 80km above the ground, they give the atoms energy and they become excited. The atoms spontaneously release this energy in discrete amounts, resulting in particular colours of light being emitted. Photographed in the Swedish Arctic

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the mesmerizing beauty of the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. The ethereal phenomenon is created by electrically charged particles from the Solar wind being drawn towards Earth's magnetic poles by its magnetic field. As these particles collide with gas atoms in the ionosphere, approximately 80km above ground level, they transfer energy to the atoms, causing them to become excited. In this enchanting image taken in the Swedish Arctic, a dense forest stands silhouetted against a snowy and frozen landscape. Against this backdrop, vibrant hues of green light illuminate the night sky like an otherworldly glow. The scene evokes a sense of tranquility and wonderment as nature puts on its own celestial light show. The photograph perfectly captures both the physical and atmospheric elements at play during this natural spectacle. It highlights how oxygen atoms emit specific colors of light when releasing their acquired energy in discrete amounts. Jeremy Walker skillfully portrays not only the visual splendor but also conveys a deeper understanding of physics and environmental phenomena through his artistry. This stunning snapshot serves as a reminder of our planet's awe-inspiring wonders while showcasing Scandinavia's unique arctic environment.
