Nature's Fireworks

Nature’s Fireworks. South Iceland. One night I was surprised when I looked up and saw this amazing natural fireworks of the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. It was a sight to see really… I wish I had more time to set up and get better shots but this is all I could get. One more item ticked off from my Photography Bucket List: Northern Lights!

    just wow!
    Is the aurora borealis in reality that great too? Or do you have to collect some light with your lense to get this deep green impression?

  • Boris on 20.06.2011 @ 02:40

    Beautiful !!!

    Outstanding, I love the strong diagonal of the main aurora and then how the ones lower in the sky seem to be coming up out of the hills and keep the eye in the frame. I also think it's awesome that the aurora is almost your favorite green.
