Recollections from Iceland that fit into your pocket!
Iceland – a place that is known for striking contrast; the ice and fire, the infertility and dazzling excellence, the hip, thundering nightlife and the stillness of the highlands. The puffins, the horses, the mythical beings, the geysirs, the way of life … Iceland has a touch of everything.
There is a Party in the Sky …
Welcome to the playground of light. It can be magical place. The northern sky is a magnificent canvas for colors and luminescence, light and darkness. Science tells us that northern lights appear due to charged particles from the Sun, mainly electrons and protons interacting with Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, causing optical emissions. This natural phenomenon has fascinated us through the ages and its intensity and diversity will surely continue to amaze. Just look up, the sky might be dancing…
We have always been fascinated with the magical displays of the northern sky. Our ancestors saw the northern lights as souls of the dead, torches of spirits or even harbingers of war. This book presents a visual feast from Iceland’s firmament – a diverse and enchanting sky, shot from all over the country.
