Carl Gallagher, Hvammstang­i, Iceland, 19 February 2020


Carl says: “At 3am I woke to see stars and what looked like wispy clouds, but they were moving too quickly. We jumped into clothes and drove on ice-covered roads to Hvammstang­i on the coast, 15 minutes away. We couldn’t believe our luck – the sky was alive in all directions. We had chanced upon a Kp5/G1 geomagneti­c storm on our first night in Iceland!”

Equipment: Canon EOS 6D Mk II DSLR mount Exposure: 10” Software: Lightroom
