One more as onboard the #wowair flight to Iceland for my third journey. I'll be spending the day with my good friend Kjartan tomorrow. 😁 . "Around the time that starlight was replacing twilight I got a text from Kjartan asking if I wanted to go on another aurora hunting expedition. I bounced down the long road past the lighthouse, the turnoff for the steam vents, and drove up to Garður. It was around 11:00 that I got to Kjartan’s house and I was getting sleepy so Kjartan offered to drive in his car. I moved a few hundred pounds of camera equipment into his hatchback and off we went again. We drove right back to Reykjanesviti where thirty minutes of stargazing and a lesson on Icelandic curse words occurred. Without warning and mid-icelandic-expletive Kjartan violently swung his camera, attention, and car around to capture what appeared to be a softly glowing puffy cloud. “They have arrived!” Kjartan exclaimed with an adorable Nordic drawl. All of my prediction apps and web sources said that there was a “zero” chance of Northern Lights that night. If this was a zero then a five was likely to make me weep. Kjartan taught me an important lesson by convincing me to go out that night: “The lights… they do what they do. They don’t care about the Internet.” Man, you said a mouthful." . . . #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment
