I visited Iceland in 2012 and saw the Northern Lights and also visited the Godafoss. Your shot of having both in one photo is really awesome and beautiful. Great stuff.
The two things that fascinate me, misty waterfalls and northern lights. This shot is true beauty! I think this is the best night shot I have ever seen, perfect! Absolutely magical.
is that aurora borealis...? wow you have successfully made the stars, the waterfall and the northern light become a beautiful composition... what a perfect moment. Good job.. :)
This is still cheating a little. This photo was not taken this April. This is an ,,autumn photo", not a April one.
This one belongs in the magazine. Definitely gets my vote for the best of the Photos of the Day for April, perfect image to end the month on.
Thank you all for beautiful comments. This picture was taken just after midnight on a Canon 5d MkI with a canon 24mm 1.4 L lens.
The mist that can be seen is the spray of the waterfall and it can be a pain because the wind blows it on the lens. But at this night the wind blew the mist in the opposite direction luckily.
But thank you again all.
Best regards Hordur.
this photo is amazing because you got the waterfall and the northern light as well and how did you stumble upon a place
This picture is absolutely stunning! I love how there is more than just one waterfall. The northern lights lights are really cool too. Its cool how they kind of fade off in the background.
This is cool photo I like the color on the top of the water.Also the light on the sky is making the water light up
What an amazing photo, this is on of my favorite photos I love the waterfalls dripping from multiple points, but what really tied this together was the northern lights in the background lighting the whole thing in a amazing color.
The picture is so awesome because it has alot of cool colors. Also I like how you got the picture so you can see all of the waterfalls.
It is cool how the water is going in the pond like a bole. It is cool how when it is going into the pond there is mist.
This picture is beautiful. It looks so perfect. It would be fun to swim in the water, if it was warm.
WOW!!! this photo ir really awesome these kind of pictures are really cool are really awesome and the colors are Amazing!!!
DANG.........I am speachless, I have seen many photos in my day, but this is AWESOME.......What makes the water glow???
@Hordur FinnbogasonLOVE this photo! Great capture. What time of year did you capture this? I'm thinking of a trip to Iceland but having a hard time deciding what time of year to go. Puffins vs aurora borealis and accessibility questions.
@CoShane Rich yes they do
@Ebonie Drine It is a amazing photo.
@Aidan Nunook I agree with you the northern lights make the picture perfect.
@Mallory K I also think that the photo really did get the water falls in the right position. nice comment.
@Mallory K The colors are BRILLIANT! Nice comment.
@Tabitha Sage I agree with you.
@Gracee Softball I like the color to.
@Cason Purell WOW cason.
@Cason Purell That would be awesome! I bet it wouldn't freeze all the way though, but maybe portions of it. Depends on where the waterfall is located I guess.
@Bodell Cougars it would be fun
@delbert knightman You are right! The colors ARE amazing!
@matthew slenderman I wonder how old you are?
@matthew slenderman You are pretty old, so you probably have seen lots of photos. I agree about the awesomeness of this photo.
