Swiss Photographer’s Unique Aurora Images

Professional landscape photographer Stefan Forster from Switzerland said his dream came true in southeast Iceland in March 2011 when he witnessed how the northern lights lit up the icebergs from the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon on the black plains of Breiðamerkursandur—and was able to catch the magical moment on camera.

“I slept in the car for five days and all night long I set the alarm clock at an interval of ten minutes so that I wouldn’t fall asleep,” he wrote icelandreview.com. “In the last night there was awesome activity and this image was taken.”

“One night later I captured another image—I was standing directly UNDER this amazing Aurora angel,” Forster added in description of the photograph below.
