Northern lights, our last night

We walked up the big hill behind Hótel Glymur on our last night in Iceland to get a better view of the lights. It's amazing how they undulate and change while you're watching. This 30 second exposure captures much more color than we could see with our eyes. They tell us that the lights are brighter and more colored in the deep winter when the air is colder.
