Symphonie Verte by alexandre-deschaumes Symphonie Verte by alexandre-deschaumes
Here is my first meeting with an 'Aurora Borealis' in the Icelandic September' sky ... One of the crazyiest experience I've encountered .

Our first night in Reykjavik , it was difficult to really "compose " the image at the place we were ... But I still like the evocative shape in this one ..

It was just upon us ... gently moving and sparkling, very eerie , absolutly ethereal ..

This really catches the feeling of laying on the ground watching the northern light-show in the sky. Well done.

Si je comprends, un rêve qui se réalise pfiouuuu ! C'est vrai que cette aurore fait de trés beaux rideaux dansant.
Tu as craqué pour l'Islande à ce que je vois hihi ! J'ai hâte de voir les dernières photos sur ton site ;-)
Normalement, je pense y aller l'année prochaine. Au fait, tu as préféré septembre pour les nuits ou autre ??
A+

Hello ;)
Oui j'ai craqué , c'est une évidence :)

On prépare un voyage photo pour l'Islande fin Juin 2011 / début juillet
( si jamais )
Au programme, trek de 4 jours, aventure sur glacier, 'jokulsarlon , cascades, Cours et analyse photos !

J'ai préféré septembre , je crois, même si c'est dur à dire, mais les aurores sont vraiment une nouvelle exitation incroyable . et certaines teintes sont plus belles, . moins de monde aussi .
Mais fin juin il y a cette étrange fausse nuit , et soleil de minuit!

à bientot

On est plutôt solitaires ! Les lieux sauvages sont tellement agréables à appréhender sans personne... Et puis pour un premier séjour 4 jours c'est peut-être un peu court... Mais qui sait si on va pas se croiser ! :-)
Et merci pour tes conseils !!
Bonne journée à toi

That is beautiful -- are those really its colors? The greenish glow is unearthly.

Just once I'd like to see a real aurora. I live a bit too far south...

Mais dis moi tu voyage énormément non?
On dis que les aurores boréales font un son assez particulier...celui d'un craquement notamment, est-ce vrai?

en tout cas ta prise de vue est de toute beauté :)

énormément ,non ! Mais j'aimerai beaucoup.

Le son , je ne l'ai pas vraiment entendu , car ici elles étaient proches mais on avait des bruits et lumières parasites, et les autres soirs, elles devaient être trop lointaines!
