Hallgrimur Helgason lives right underneath the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. It is the most beautiful yet elusive natural light display on Earth. Helgason explains his enviable location: “Where I live in it’s not necessary to go far—the Aurora is blasting all over. I shoot the Northern lights from my back door.”

Auroras occur when light from the sun strikes atoms in the earth’s atmosphere, causing the atoms’ energy to rise and drop. When the energy drops, it releases a photon—the basic component of visible light. The spectacular views are often elusive to witness and are most commonly visible in the Scandinavian countries. However, sometimes they spread further down to the United Kingdom.

However, they are occasional only, and to see them regularly, one might consider settling in the outskirts of Reykjavik—just like Helgason. Dazzling! See one-of-a-kind MAGICAL place with colourful skies (photos) Magical view Watch a video of the Northern Lights taken in Norway below.
