We started our hunt for the lights as soon as we saw a faint greenish blurry something from our hotel room in Mosfellsbaer. 30 minutes later we arrived at a parking ground on the way to Thingvellir.
Nobody else was there and all of a sudden the sky ignited a vast and overwhelming light show. The auroras suddenly were so bright that almost all the pictures were overexposed and instead of adjusting the camera I decided to just enjoy the northern lights that were everywhere, moving with a good pace, building clear structures, curtains and spirals. What was once a faint glow for the naked eye became a clearly visible green with pink tips at the very bottom.
Neither words can express the natural beauty that we have seen, nor can the pictures that are not overexposed.
The aurora even smiled at us (pic 2).
