:shock:These areincredibly spectacular shots, Gisli! It's hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to, I'd pick #3. Fantastic work.

Fantastic series. I think any shot you post could win any POTD contest. They are simply excellent, all of them. A pleasure to view. Thank you.

Ha ha ha:lol:, I just tried to wipe off the speck of dust on my monitor as I was viewing the boats in the harbor picture, until I realized it was a bright star above the mountains. Now that's quality photography! :lol:

Crystal clear shots! I can see the quality of the lens looking at theway light source is starredinto many astreak in pic #1. Yet, I agree withwith toshi on #3

Great use of foreground there!! I only wish you allowed just afraction more of itto the bottom..

How (!!!) did you do #4, with the stars, the aurora, and the foreground all just perfectly right. Was there some subtle technique we could learn, or was it just patience and many different exposure times?

Wonderful images!

I really want to go to Iceland. I've wanted it for many years, but I can't see how I'll ever manage it. We made it to Faroe about 25 years ago, when there was a reasonable ferry service from the Scottish mainland, which went on to Iceland. Now British mainlanders have to get to Shetland first, which is a huge expense in itself - we went in 2005, and several times before that.

Please keep your wonderful pictures coming.

Amazing shots Gisli! Love #3! If you don't mind me asking did you shine a light at the boats for photo #3? Thanks! :-)
