For the most of our travel companions, it was the first time that we were in wintertime at northern latitudes. So we were very keen to see the northern light. At one night, we were finally able to see it.

Very impressive but also strange. It's one of those experiences that make you feel that you're alive! For me, those moments are also a reason for travelling, to see, feel and explore things that I wouldn't have experienced if I just stayed at home.

I thought the light would be moving all the time. Apparently, it did, but at a slower tempo. Luckily, Haukur is a professional photographer, so he took some pictures of it.

Watch the red shine on the pole at the left, amazing what you can do with the stop-light of a car. Haukur just adjusted the shutter of his camera to some 30 seconds and in the meantime he pushed the break of the car. Hence the red shine. It takes a professional to know!
