And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it. - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist . . // This was the result of my very first attempt at Aurora chasing in Iceland last week. After missing the dancing lights with unfavorable weather conditions and cancelled tours 5 nights in a row, I gained a thorough appreciation for the unpredictable and ever changing skies. This started out as a windy and rainy night, hunkered on a bus dressed all my 3-5 layers of thermal merino, fleece, down and goretex rain gear. It does not reflect the time and patience it took in capture just a single still. I did not see any spectacular curtain of northern lights with my naked eye that night, and was feeling somewhat disappointed after much hype and waiting all these months for this moment. But through my camera lens, this singular frame was what my naked eye could not see. The Big Dipper is prominent and glows in the night sky against the national park we gaze at. While it was not what I went out to chase, I feel this image encapsulates my lesson that evening. You do not always get what you chase after, but rather what you need most that the universe gives. In all its glory, the night sky painted a picture of the constellations above, a reminder we are just a single being in this solar system. It makes you feel very small, but all at once be in awe of life. It was a lesson in patience, in time, knowing that we can put our thoughts out to the universe, translated to energy, to manifest our desires, but accepting the forms in which the universe delivers that wish. I made a wish that night upon those stars, and hope you do too. 🌠💫🙏 . . . . . #bigdipper #astronomy #astrophotography #nightsky #auroraborealis #aurorachasing #northernlights #universe #thealchemist #paulocoelho #inspiration #quotes #iceland #nationalpark #exploreiceland #travelphotography #bealpha #sonyalpha

The ladies and gentlemen in Java Indonesia are some of the most skilled wood workers and artisans when it comes to building furniture. Our wood is also sourced from sustainable lumber yards not too far from them to reduce our footprint and ensure our wood is of the best quality. — — — #aurora #auroraborealis #iceland #travel #photographer #photography #travelblogger #travelholic #dji #nikon #canon #gopro #win #freeflight #travelphotographer #travelphoto #adventure #adventuretime #hero4 #djimavicpro #horses #animals #girl #sunset #beautiful #traveler #surfer #newyork #newyorkcity #love

Schon gewusst? Polarlichter kommen überall auf der Welt vor. Im nördlichen Finnland kann man sie besonders häufig bestaunen - in etwa 200 Nächten pro Jahr. _______________________ ©Jamen Percy/Shutterstock #nordlichter #polarlichter #auroraborealis #naturphänomen #nachthimmel #geolino #kindermagazin #wissenfürkinder

Five funny facts about Northern Lights (aurora borealis): ✨🌈⭐🔭 1) Although more well-known, the polar lights are not exclusive to the Northern hemisphere, there are also Southern Lights, or aurora australis in scientific. While equally spectacular, the Southern Lights are more inaccessible than their Northern cousin and therefore, have not received quite as much fame. 2) The light is caused by collisions between fast-moving electrons and the oxygen and nitrogen in Earth’s upper atmosphere. The electrons - which come from the magnetosphere, the region of space controlled by Earth’s magnetic field - transfer energy to the oxygen and nitrogen gases. When the oxygen and nitrogen molecules return to their normal state, they release the extra energy in the form of light. 3) The gorgeous colours of the aurora depend on whether the electrons collide with oxygen or nitrogen. A collision with oxygen results in emission of greenish-yellow or red light, while nitrogen generally gives off blue light; the blending of these produces purple, pink, and white. 4) There have been many legends about the Northern Lights. Some North American Inuit tribes call the aurora „aqsarniit“ (meaning “football players”) thinking it is the spirits of the dead playing football with a head of a walrus. 5) Voyagers 1 and 2 were the first probes to bring back pictures of auroras on Jupiter and Saturn, and later Uranus and Neptune. Since then, the Hubble Space Telescope has taken pictures of them as well. Auroras on either Jupiter or Saturn are much larger and more powerful than on Earth, because those planets magnetic fields are orders of magnitude more intense. . . . #synoviastudios #scicomm #sciencewriter #space #northernlights #aurora #auroraborealis #pink #purple #science #chemistry #astronomy #fivefunnyfacts #arctic #research #f4f
