Seeing the northern lights was one of the things that I wanted to accomplish in my life.

And four days ago, I finally did it in Reykjavik, Iceland!

Expecting to see more, I went out again on the next day, and then…

It was amazing. I’m wondering how poets would describe by words the beauty of the northern lights now, because I couldn’t help but get lost for words.

I think I’m totally in love with northern lights…

    Beautiful images! It must have been so special to see a sight like that! I still have not seen them myself … its on my list now.

      It’s simply unbelievable. It was so dramatic and big-scale that I felt like all of my personal problems were as good as nothing.

    OMG… the colors are amazing. It’s hard to believe the sky could turn this color. I wonder what actually causes this.
