"It starts as a cloud-like formation, a faint shadow that slowly begins a seductive dance across the sky. I feel hypnotised, unable to look away.
It gains momentum and begins to change shape and colour, vibrant shades of green spreading across the sky like paint being thrown onto a canvas. It twists and turns, dancing to a melody only it can hear. The sky is its dance floor, I am its audience and its performance is captivating."
The northern lights have been calling out to travellers, photographers, scientists and naturalists for centuries. They have been mystified and romanticised by indigenous folklore, they excite scientific minds and they ignite the imagination of all who stand beneath them.
I was in the right time at the right place in 2014 as a geomagnetic storm created an incredible display above the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland.
