This was the best Aurora view we got during our 2019 Iceland trip " I would say this is a mixture of Hope, luck, and effort" After the storm in southern Iceland, the Next day we reached Vik . That day the sky was clear because of wind thank god! after two days of heavy wind and snow, it's clear. that evening was incredible, we got some good sunset shots. we were hoping for an Aurora that night since the cloud coverage was almost zero in that night- as per the weather forecast.
We were waiting near the Skogga falls for a picture with Aurora and waterfall but activity was too low it was nothing more than airglow. we were melancholic because it's our last day in Iceland trip, we got Aurora only for one day 😐. After long waiting, by 1 am @ashish.langade suggested to go to the famous Dc3 plane wreck for the Aurora, but there was no clue of Aurora in that time, if there is no Aurora, we will shoot star trail he said. Walking to that area in freezing cold night was not a good idea, even without any chances of Aurora! I denied the plan 1st, later agreed half-minded, we started walking with a Hope, that will get to see the Aurora today. We walked around 4 kilometers in a freakin cold windy night and took almost 45-50 min to reach there, by the time like magic suddenly lady Aurora started dancing above Us! we were all excited and clicked a few pictures. Later we felt its a payback for our Effort. walking back from the location to the parking area was even harder, we took more than one hour to reach there, in between I felt that we are in an infinite loop, never-ending pathways and I kept on walking towards the parking and not reaching there, we were tired as hell but it was a happy ending for our trip.
