Wow! With the reflection of the aurora borealis in the water, not to mention the way the water leads the eye into the image, this is one of the more striking northern light images I've come across.

I gave this an 8 - looked like it needed a whisker up on the left to straighten, but could be just a visual thing. Beautiful capture of this amazing phenomenon, coupled with the lineal flow of the river and the reflection an added extra as well.

Great image and love the green river. Love the sky color to. It's
not that often one gets other colors than green.
Virkilega skörp og skemmtileg. Finnst dálítið áhugavert að sjá að þú
stoppar linsuna niður í 7.1
