  • Northern lights

    "This was one of the most amazing day of my life. In the afternoon fantastic lenticular clouds were formed between me and Myrdalsjökull glacier so I took some amazing shots at sunset. I came back at night and fantastic northern lights were painting the sky of green. I took some shots at the local lighthouse but suddenly my attention fell on this little house (I guess lighthouse's guardian home). The door was open and the light on."Source: Daniele Boffelli
