The breathtaking dancing beams of the Northern Lights
Today several mayor UK newspaper were filled with amazing Northern Lights (Aurora borealis) pictures from arctic locations in Alaska and Canada.
Rolf Hicker and his wife Michelle spent many years capturing those amazing images.
While most photographers stay home at predictions of a full moon, Rolf Hicker heads out into the frigid nights (often at -45 degrees celsius) to capture the northern lights phenomenon in a unique situation ... while it dances in the light of the full moon.
Mr Hicker described it as a 'special and very difficult task', which is especially rewarding during a full moon.
He said: 'We love that time. It is the perfect time to show northern lights with the landscape.
'If conditions are right, especially when it is very cold, you can experience one of the most amazing moments we ever had - a moonrise with northern lights, all at the same time.
'The dark blue sky turns orange as long as the moon is just underneath the horizon, minutes later the moon is up and it is very bright - very often too bright to see the northern lights.'
Scientists say the natural phenomenon, called aurora borealis, is created by the sun's super hot atmosphere, which blasts particles into the protective magnetic field surrounding the Earth.
Rolf's wife, Michelle, is an integral part of the whole operation.
'The tricky part is not to over expose the landscape as the full moon reflects the light on the snow.
'A very important part involves my wife Michelle who helps me to prepare scenes and with clothing and equipment.
'The time is fairly limited which you can be outside without your gloves on at minus 45 degrees, so Michelle helps me to change equipment, change digital cards and keeping spare batteries as close to her body as possible - just to extend their life before it gets too cold.
