Northern Lights over the Milky Way

portfolio at | instagram | facebook | 500px | ng yourshot | flickr | olhares

Northern lights panorama over a mountain somewhere in Iceland (can't really tell where I was, but it was somewhere around Reykjavik!) and the milky way lurking on the starry night sky. This is nature's light show on full display, colorful soft waves dancing and breaking all over through the night sky. 

This is a stitched panorama built off 9 vertical images.

Thank you foureyes, much appreciated! :) You say you've seen it on Nat Geo TV, you mean aurora footage in general or my photograph? I didn't know it was on, if that's the case. Anyway, thank you very much for your kind comment!

Do you allow your work to be used in photomanipulations? This is such a beautiful scene o-o

Hi Star-Waffle, thank you for your comment! As for using for photo-manipulation, I authorize it it's use as long it is for a strictly personal project.
