Nordic landscapes and northern lights – 1

In 2019, I planned to photograph aurora borealis in all parts of the spectrum. I had two chances to photograph aurorae, the first one came while attending a scientific conference in Reykjavik. Every evening, me and a friend would go on a road trip and hope for the best. First stop: the famous waterfall of Seljalandsfoss. It is fed by the nearby infamous glacier region of Eyjafjallajökull: it sits on top of a relatively active volcano, which is generally a bad place for a glacier to be and brings risks when trying to harvest the glacier for water. Unfortunately, global warming may mean that this marvel may soon vanish, since the glacier is a relatively small one and therefore one of the first to go with rising temperatures.
