|I went out with Sissi, Indridistefans, Steinar and Steinar“s buddy Halli to Žingvellir (don“t know if he is a DPC user).
It was absolutely FREEZING, I don“t think I have ever been outdoors during night in such cold, it was about -25 degrees celcius and also blowing cold wind on top of that. It was totally worth it though, when we got there the borealis were as strong as I have ever seen them and put on quite a show.
I really like this picture simply because the "hole" in the borealis looks like a Raven, at least to me. Oh and we have absolutely no legends about the phoenix here in Iceland but quite a few about ravens so while I appreciate the title suggestion change, there really is no doubt in my mind that this is indeed a raven and not a phoenix but I am glad people see a shape in there as well :)
Post processing pretty standard, C1 raw processing, darkened sky and brightened ground but not by much, since the borealis were insanely strong that night.
