Artist's Description

I got lucky with this one.. this wasn;t even visible to the human eye, but our guide in Pingvellir National Park pointed out something that was nothing more than a mist above an arctic lunar landscape. I set my exposure for 25 seconds, stuck the camera on a tripod, dragged it through the snow to a high point, avoided the fift chasm separating USA and Europe tectonic plates (i’m not kidding.. it was yards away and a damn steep fall in the dark) and waited for something to happen. This was the result. i was really pleased for a first time effort although i am unsure if it quite merits being posted here when i see some of the fantastic northern lights shots around, the picture won’t withstand much criticism- but i was quite proud of it at the time, it marked a progression of learning – certainly i was able to take something back that others, pointing their mobile phones to the skies, didn’t.
