Some landscape pictures from Iceland.
I have arranged the tour according to the weather conditions.
Main goal of the trip were polar lights.
I spent several nights in the car around Myvatn.
There was clear sky, but no polar lights.
Maybe low energetic lights were there, but I was unable to see it.
Next attempt was in Hallomstadur, which is located south of Egilsstadir.
After waiting for about four hours a low energetic polar light appeared.
The naked eye cannot see colors, if the light is very low.
There was no green.
Instead, the sky was a little bit like fifty shades of grey.
The camera sensor is more sensitve as the eye.
One shade of grey turned into green.
Iceland is located south of the polar light circle.
Therefore I travelled further north in the next night.
After six hours a polar light appeared.
But, it was very faint and close to the horizon.
The polar light circle is further north.
This was the last polar light of the trip.
I headed south.
The afternoon sun near Höfn.
This was a low effort picture.
I just stopped the car and took it out of the window.
@Big Andy: you know the spot ...
Another nice location is Skogafoss.
It is illuminated by the afternoon sun and a rainbow occurs.
I had to wait for a long time to get a picture without people.
It is a very busy place. Many busses stop here and release a larger number of people.
It was not much fun for me.
Therefore, I made a second attempt on the next morning.
At 7 am the Skogafoss was iluminated by a half moon.
I need not to share the fall with other people.
