In February I visited Iceland for the second time with some friends. One of them actually mostly joined us for the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, aka Aurora Borealis. While I knew you can’t be sure to see them just by going somewhere north during wintertime, I was definitely hopeful. And our wishes were granted. The first night I noticed something in the sky that I couldn’t quite define. Was it a cloud? I took a picture with a long shutterspeed from the car (very artistic), and it revealed a green spot in the sky! I became the ‘aurora spotter’, pretty much pointing my camera to anything that slightly resembled this strange phenomenon. The second night, the spot became a curve stretching out from the left to the right. And the third night, we spent hours outside freezing our asses off. Because this is what we saw.
Okay, fair is fair: I haven’t been able to take a picture every day in February. Inspiration comes in waves I guess. I also went to Iceland (my love) to which I’ll dedicate another post soon. So here are a few pictures I took in February. :)
