From * about this image: “Persistence”
After 3 nights - again - I got the circles. Just like 2 years ago I saw one above Kirkjufell.
It was an extremely windy evening. I was trying to shoot sunset with no luck. Basically I was not able to hold my camera. Wind picked up so hard that I fell in the snow, and since the snow was very deep I disappeared :)
Then I stand up, look behind and my backpack cover was flying away already so far away. I lost sign of it in less than a second as it seemed to travel extreme distance in no time.
The night came and I decided to try for northern lights hoping there will be a moment when it is possible to take a shot between crazy winds. It was an early night and there was nobody around the waterfall or the whole area. I think people fleeted because of the storm. I walked and suddenly my way was brighten up by the divine lights all over the sky !!! Right then I made it near the edge of the waterfall and literally lay down on the ground holding my tripod with both hands. Minutes after, this happened ... I must have been screaming and holding my breath in amazement and effort since I suddenly felt dizzy and needed to take a big breath. Then a strong hail started to fall from the sky! the moon shined too and there was a rainbow.. oh ... what a night .. Some time passed, I stood up and started to walk away while I got this feeling of gratitude, an overwhelming gratitude..
I knew my mission was complete.
When I think back to this experience now It felt truly magical. The struggle, the effort, the fight, the timing. Like I was following some invisible force which led me into this unconsciously. Made me fight for it with all the energy I had. And then showed me the treasure
