Abandonded hosue and Aurora

Aurora Time lapse from Snæfellsnes

In Blog by Jón Hil.

The Snæfellsnes is a peninsula situated to the west of Borgarfjörður, in west part of Iceland. The Peninsula is a photographer’s paradise, has been named Iceland in minature, because many national sights can be found in the area. The peninsula is surrounded by sea with beautiful cliff formations, small picturesque fishing villages, waterfalls and endless lava fields. The Snæfellsnes peninsula is built from eruptions for thousands of years, leaving behind craters and volcanoes all the way to the big one, the Snæfellsjökull it self. The Snæfellsjökull volcano, regarded as one of the symbols of Iceland. With its height of 1446 m, it is the highest mountain on the peninsula and has a glacier at its peak. The mountain is also known as the setting of the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by the French author Jules Verne.

For last two year I have been collecting time lapse clips of Aurora and Milky way on well known photo locations like; The black Church, Arnarstapi fishing village, abandoned house Dagverðará and mountain Kirkjufell.
