Photographer's Note

It's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and light.
It leads you here, despite your destination
under the Milky Way tonight.

We had to sit entirely still for up to 20 seconds at a time to get this and a few other shots like it. It's harder than it sounds - moving even one centimetre can create a blur during the long exposures. Thankfully, that night's display lasted well over an hour - more than enough time to get a few photos, and then just sit and stare in silence and awe.

Kulusuk, East Greenland.
