The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis do not need an introduction I suspect. This is one of those natural phenomena that most of us wish to see at some point in our lives. Many people travel to Iceland just to get a chance to see the Northern Lights. It was certainly one of the things I hoped to see when I got here. Getting to see this spectacular light show is a bit hit and miss. It’s very much weather dependent, clear and dark skies are needed along with plenty of solar activity.
I visited Siglufjörður in the far north of Iceland yesterday and was lucky enough to witness this amazing light show. Here are a couple of the pictures I was able to take.. more to follow I hope.. I’m off hunting the Aurora again tonight. A little more locally to Reykjavik this time.. :-)
