Caption: My dream of experiencing the Northern lights has come true! I just spent an amazing 9 days in Iceland, and was fortunate to have good weather and 3 nights of incredible auroras! This display was the most intense, and at it's peak covered the entire sky!

Wow, how wonderful. Don't you just love Iceland? We stopped there on a Transatlantic Cruise about 5 years ago in the fall and it was just beautiful. No northern light though. I guess I must travel there in the winter also.

Congratulations and have a great trip!

Thank you all so much! This was taken in a field next to the hotel. The buildings are greenhouses that are heated geothermally. They grow produce for the hotel restaurant. Thanks very much approvers.
