Gisli,I could say, that's thebest set of Aurora pictures I've seen

#1 is a great starter and in #3 it's amazing to see the moon surrounded by the Aurora!! #2 also offers a very eye pleasing landscape composition in which I only wished to see a bit moreto the bottom where the road comes from (which might mean a little comprimise from the top though) ...Oh!as if spell rising beyond the hill in #4!!

Gisli,

I agree with all of the earlier sentiments, your aurora shots are quite incredible. I can't quite put my finger on what makes the shots so beautiful, whether it's the excellent composition, perfect exposure, or the spectral colour of the aurora itself.

I'm thinkinhg all of the above! Incidentally, I am so very jealous of the fact you get to shoot the aurora on such a regular basis!

Simply lovely.

#1 has such perfect composition.

And with the moonand snow in #3 - it is other-worldly.

Great capture.

What glorious heavenly images! They take your breath away (and freeze it!). I was relieved this time not to see any small figures doing 20-second cross-country runs on the snow & ice.

Stunning, stunning, stunning. The land of 'fire and ice'. I envy you. How far are you from volcanic lava flow and ice together?

Hi Gisli,

Great photos of your wonderful Icelandic auroras, yets again! Thanks for sharing.

I particularly like photos 3 and 5. The positioning (and composition) of the moon fits so smoothly, wonderfully in that aurora swirl in photo 3. And the house in photo 5 is starkly square and colourwise also contrasts with the sky.

Wonderful! Hope you've defrosted (thawed) by now! We'll try to send you some of our heat (many days have been around 35 to 40 already this year!) - if you send us some rain (and auroras!)

Regards,

Paul

Simply stunning! It's hard to pick a favorite because they're all so sensational, but I think I like the stark contrast with the house in #5.
