Here are three more pictures of my (N)Iceland series 😉
We were really lucky to see aurora borealis (or simply northern lights) already on our first day after we arrived, we could see the aurora several times during our two week stay, but this was also the strongest aurora we ever experienced.
And so she danced... Here's another one of our first encounters back in Iceland, this time we were really lucky to get a nice display of northern lights! Some parts of the aurora literally danced above our heads, really quick so that this part of the show was only meant for our eyes.
This all happened close to the Dýrhólaey lighthouse, which is close to Vik, where we also found a breathtaking coastline as the perfect foreground.
Fire over Iceland This one has been taken on our first encounter with the highlands of Iceland, when we were driving up F210 desperately searching for Axlafoss, a not so popular waterfall. Because we were really busy locating that damn waterfall we didn't pay enough attention to the sunset which we only realized when the colours started to explode, booooom.... When we realized it we panicky parked the car, took the camera gear and run towards the nice river we just saw while driving along.
Well, there was not so much time looking for striking compositions but I'm still content with this one, it's the best I could find within the time window of 5-10min where the light and colours were fading...
In hindsight this was also the best sunset we experience during our 2 weeks on Iceland.
