Stunning Time-Lapse of Iceland's Northern Lights

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

Photographer Ágúst Ingvarsson shot over 6,500 still photographs of the aurora borealis in and around Reykjavik this past winter. Combined, they make up Aurora Islandica, a gorgeous time-lapse video of this supernatural meteorological phenomenon. This is one to watch full screen.

Ingvarsson shot with a Canon 7D and used music by Mondkopf
