Night at the Thing

By Hugeknot
I have been determined to get this shot!

Although the aurora forecast was low, the sky was very clear so I decided to venture out for some night shots. To my surprise the northern lights appeared... so I made the most of my situation.

This is a HDR blended with a short exposure to get rid of the star trails. The longest exposure was 25min.

Drawn to this by the caption, wondering if 'the Thing' was Thingvellir (which I visited many many years ago) - and it was! A great capture

Super stuff, this is the best of your little series do far - well at least it's my favourite so far!
You make it look easy, Tony, which I am sure it is not. A stunning image.
