aurora on my block
I was just driving back home from the pool and saw the fantastic ghostly green fingers of the norðurljós (nothern lights) hanging over Reykjavík harbor, bright enough to be seen even through my salt-spattered windshield... so I grabbed my camera and hurried outside to snap these pictures, lots of 8-second exposures with a tripod stuck in the snow. I looked like a real camera weenie. All that was missing was the greying ponytail. You Icelanders reading this can go ahead and laugh now, the same way we Bostonians laugh at tourists for actually wanting to visit "Cheers". Those of you not jaded by the aurora, enjoy!
