Northern lights - taken from the ship.  Northern light photography relies on longer than normal exposures to capture the often dim lights in the sky.  Fortunately, as you head further north above the artic circle, the lights become much brighter and exposures of between 1 to 2 secs will often do the job.  On a ship moving at about 12 knots, capturing a sharp landscape is still a challenge.  This is one of my better examples!
