Aurora borealis near Breiðdalsvik

This is probably my best aurora shot of the trip in the sense of aurora structure. I did not, however, get the stars perfectly focused. It was harder than I thought to properly focus at infinity--not just a matter of cranking the focus dial all the way over. Much more subtle than that. This was photographed with me wearing a nightgown, slippers and bathrobe in temperatures not too much above freezing. Most of us had put our gear away and gone to bed for the night, only to be awakened by Rod's call, "Pretty decent aurora out here".
