My attempts at astro imaging

The Northern Lights from Iceland


For a 40th Birthday present my wife arranged a surprise trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.  We stayed for a couple of days (Actually 3 days, the flight home was cancelled so we were put up in a hotel for the evening) in a guest house which was outside a little village about 20 minutes from Reykjavik, called MosfellsbaerWe had a lovely day trip to see Iceland by day and at night, we jumped in the hot tub and watched the Aurora, whilst drinking some Icelandic Schnapps!  I only lasted about half an hour as I was desperate to get some images!  I’m trying to create a couple of decent animations as I have loads of images but animated GIF’s look rubbish, so will need to find another way! For tonight though, here are a few of the shots – enjoy!mergedIMG_5556 IMG_5557 IMG_5560 IMG_5569 IMG_5577 IMG_5578 IMG_5579
