Finally the sky cleared and the Aurora showed up for the first time in 3 months.


The forecast was expecting medium Aurora activity. So out I went, drove to the mountains where there was snowy foreground. The Aurora started to appear, I stopped the car but to my horror I realized I had forgotten my tripod in all the excitement of finally going out and shooting Aurora. I tried to put the camera on a stone, the hood of my car. But the results where terrible.


So I had to go home again, looking at all the beautiful Aurora out of my car window unable to capture in on my camera.


When I had the tripod again I went to the nearest location. No snowy foreground but the results where fine because the light pollution from the nearby city lit up the house and foreground a bit too. So it all ended well


I took this near Straumur Art center. Just a little down the road behind Straumur there are a few old buildings.
