What a moment be in and one I will never forget. @kcdeane and @geoffgulevich in Þórsmörk, Iceland underneath a spectactular Northern Lights show. The town of Reykjavik even demanded all lights be shut off in the city during this night due to the intensity of the showing here. Our crew went to Iceland with a vision to riding under the Northern Lights and we continually got shut down by weather. I photographed this the last night we were there on a 10 day trip and only saw the lights for two nights at the end of our trip. The camera generally captures a lot more of the lights than your eyes, but to be honest this is exactly what it looked like in person. Big thanks to our guide Magne from @icebike for getting us to this spot while madly driving around at midnight trying to find the right location. @fstopgear #iceland #northernlights #photography #nature #nikonphotography #aurora #justsouthofspace #instagram #love #instagood #photooftheday #picoftheday #instadaily #friends #summer #art #style
