Northern Lights: Reykjanesbær, Iceland

I promised I would post the photo we got of the Aurora Borealis on our last night in Iceland. Winds were between 20-25 km/h and it was about -5.5°C with the windchill. Cory blind-focused the camera and we both braced the tripod for this 30 second exposure. I can’t explain how they look in real life, but I can say it’s pretty magical. No photo can do them justice; they’re all long exposures, and when they’re in front of you they move and swirl and it looks like a dream. I feel so lucky to have seen them on such a short stopover, and I hope I am lucky enough to see them again in my lifetime!
