Blue Aurora - Grundarfjörður, Iceland – Peerakit Jirachetthakun
The Aurora Borealis is rare enough, but a blue one? We have never seen that before. Most of the ones we have seen have been green like this one CLICK HERE. What a great capture with excellent composition and perfect exposure. Please read Jirachetthakun’s story below and then visit his websites for more spectacular images.
It was October that I planned to visit Iceland. The main reason for the trip is to have the chance to see the amazing phenomenon, aurora borealis. I heard many stories that Iceland is always cloudy and has lower chance to watch northern light compared to other northern countries. To maximize the chance to see, clear sky and reliable aurora activity are a must. Patience always rewards those who wait. It was a cold windy night at 0 degree Celsius as I drove to wait for the magic to happen. The picture was taken at 1pm when the show was at its peak. It was my first time to see the aurora and I couldn’t help cheering the entire time. I was lucky to see a blue aurora and this was one of my most unforgettable experiences.
