Photographer captures Northern Lights phenomenon

A photographer has managed to capture the Northern Lights phenomenon in Northern Norway, after he decided to place his camera on top of a mountain to shoot a time lapse of the sky.

Eirik Evjen, who lives in Lofoten, took the pictures on Friday and was amazed by the results.

"It was very cold outside so I had to wrap the camera in the warm clothes I was wearing," he said. "I got a real surprise when I picked up the camera eight hours later."
