RR-83-Vestrahorn Aurora - A3

Vestrahorn Aurora

Photographing the northern lights above the famous Vestrahorn mountain had for many years been one of those dream shots I would have loved to add to my portfolio. Even getting the opportunity to visit Iceland isn't a given, never mind being actually there with an active aurora.

During my 2017 visit to Iceland, Vestrahorn was naturally high on my list of locations to photograph. Upon arrival, I took a good look at the selection of aurora forecast services, all of which told me the upcoming evenings would have 'No Activity'. Well, so much for their forecasts!
