On the tip of Reykjanes peninsula lies this old lighthouse. It not used anymore as there is a larger one behind me when I took this picture. Very convenient because on a long exposure the new lighthouse lits up this one perfectly.

The aurora forecast wasn't expecting any activity but there it was when I looked out of the window of my house. Highly active, like the sky was on fire.

Grabbed the camera, ran out to the car with my wife. When I arrived at the closed location out of the city it was all over. So disappointing.

As I was out already I wanted to shoot something. Went to this famous lighthouse called Garšskagaviti. There the aurora appeared weakly again for a short moment. Glad I was there to capture it.
