Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)

Location: Miðdalskot, Bláskógabyggð – Island.

The great expeditions with PTMA (September 2019)

These are the last photos of the northern lights, which I was able to photograph during the trip to Iceland from September 2019.

During last nights I’ve took these photos I slept very little. The quantity as well as the scope of the performance that was taking place above my head, beat all the previous ones I’ve seen so far.

I decided to post only those more interesting shots. There are 23 photos that I selected among 37 GB of data (913 files) from material I’ve collected two nights in a row.
