Phoenix Rising – Northern Lights Form Legendary Bird Over Iceland
Few things are more impressive than the aurora borealis, otherwise known as the northern lights. Hallgrimur P. Helgason, an Icelandic photographer, photographs the aurora in the hopes of finding animal shapes in the sky.
"It's really a thrill shooting the aurora, especially when they are so playful like they were that night, he said. "I have to admit that I always get an Adrenalin kick when the lights burst out like that – that particular shot was the top one of the night."
