On evening last fall, the countryside of Kirkjub├Žjarklaustur, Iceland was beautifully lit in the soft tones of a green colored aurora. Shades of red and purple could also be detected. Rising above the eastern horizon, Orion is prominent at center. My friends and I spent more than 3-hours just admiring the constantly changing sky that presented us this fairy-tale image. When darkness falls across Iceland's cold landscape, it's always a thrill when the spectacle of the aurora borealis makes an appearance. Photo taken on November 13, 2023.

Photo Details: Canon 600D camera; Samyang 14mm lens; 5 second exposure; f2.8; 3200 ISO.
