Over the past couple of months, the skies over Iceland have been electrified with the absolutely astonishing beauty of the Northern Lights, leading many a photographer to brave the chilly air in order to capture some of that beauty for themselves. The city of Reykjavik further encouraged photos by encouraging that lights be turned off in the entire city.
