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.
