Epic Bucket List Adventures: Seeking the Northern Lights in Iceland

Capturing the Moment

I brought my DSLR camera and started snapping pictures right away when we arrived in Iceland. The camera was still new to me at the time, so I couldn’t wait to test it out.

I basked in this new, rare opportunity to walk around a unique town snapping photos while people-watching and listening to the Germanesque tone of the Icelandic language. It felt unreal.

Over at the Hallgrimskirkja Lutheran Church, we took an elevator to the top for a 360-degree view of the city.

The clouds glazed over the snow-capped mountains. The stretch of the sea and the colorful rooftops of the surrounding houses — it was all breathtaking.

Reykjavik had already proved to be better than I expected during the day, and now we waited in the dark to see if Reykjavik would show its colors at night.
