These amazing northern lights looking like a rising phoenix over Iceland were taken by Hallgrimur P. Helgason on September 24, 2015.
His incredible photo just won a ‘Best of the Week’ award on Pixoto.com!
Incredible photographs of the aurora borealis over Iceland show the moment they formed the outline of a phoenix.
The lights formed a near perfect shape of the fire-breathing creature which was common in ancient mythology.
Hallgrimur P Helgason said the key to photographing the spectacle was avoiding light pollution and using no flash.
