Interesting Photo of the Day: Auroras Over Crater Lake

Few places on Earth match the beauty of the Icelandic countryside, and this photo shows exactly why photographers are flocking to the island’s Golden Circle route:

Situated at a high latitude just outside of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is one of the best places on the planet to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Photographer and Icelandic native Sigurdur William Brynjarsson managed to capture this surreal shot on a particularly clear night, featuring ribbons of green and purple light streaking across the Milky Way.

Beneath the night sky lies an ancient crater lake known as Kerid. From a tall vantage point, Brynjarsson managed to capture the aurora’s reflection in the still waters of the 3,000 year old lake. The image, composed of 13 frames total, feels more like a still out of a sci-fi film than a photograph of a natural phenomena.

With soft greens reflecting off of the snow and a scattering of stars, it’s clear that this tundra is a destination every serious night photographer should see with their own eyes at least once.
