Journey to Iceland

Just back from our journey to Iceland to try to catch the Aurora Borealis before the summer sun. Traveling with good friends Bill Earle, Marc Nathanson & John Nelson, we met our guide, Olgier Andersson from Iceland Aurora Tours and started our trip to our base on the central, eastern coast.

0261-048fwExploring glaciers, waterfalls, and the black beaches for a couple of days, hoping the weather would break we saw our window 90 minutes away.

Driving south, we spotted the beginning of activity high in the evening sky. Pulling off to a clearing by the road, we set up for the evening as the once in a lifetime opportunity for the best light show in years unfolded before us. Thinking about that night and looking at the images we made, we wonder if it was real.

It was! 0261-208fw
