Northern Light at Blonduos, Iceland

We went for a walk around the seaside near the guesthouse. It was so beautiful around the coast but the sky was quite dark. Luckily we still able to see the blue hour at the little dockyard. There is a museum  in front of the pier.  We went back to the guest house, but unfortunately we can’t cook in this Bed & Breakfast. So we drove our car further away from the guesthouse and cook our meal at the car park compound.

When we went back to the B&B, the staff came to look for us, we can see the “Aurora” just in front of the guest house.  Utterly speechless to be able to view this amazing beautiful green lights dancing in the sky. Been told by the staff that it is too bright around here due to lamps posts and lights from the houses. It is best to view this sight with totally blackness. So we drove our car to the nearby farmhouse and hopefully I am able to take a few photos of this amazing sights.

Aurora is a natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, especially near  the Northern or Southern magnetic pole. The effect is caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the upper atmosphere. In northern and southern regions it is respectively called aurora borealis or Northern Lights.

It was freaky cold to stand and try to take photos of the “Aurora”. We set our camera and used the remote control to stop the timer so we don’t have to stand in the freezing cold. Unfortunately, we were quite near to the main road so whenever a car passing, the lights from the car totally destroy our photo. At least, we were lucky  to view this amazing sights and all the troubles and problems which we had been facing the day totally gone from our mind,
