Halfway on the way to Iceland at around 1 am in the morning the captain informed us that nothern lights can be seen on the right sight of the plane. Due to the fact that the plane was not fully booked I was able to get a window seat on the right sight. The show was amazing. I was mesmerized and instantly wasnt tired anymore. I tried to take pictures which was not easy. The plane was shaking, I was so exited and did not have a steady hand and it was still to bright in the plane. I covered the window and my head with a jacket and tried to stabilize my camera on my knee. Below is the one decent shot I got from the plane. What do you think?
On our second night in Iceland we got lucky again and were able to enjoy the noghtern lights again. It was pretty cold and I realized I need a new and better lens 🙂
Nevertheless I am pretty happy with the results eventhough they are far away from being perfect.
Watching the light dance around the sky is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and I am still so excited just thinking about it!
