Power of the Sun

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Chakarin Wattanamongkol

Even in the night, the sun transmits its power to reach our planet via its ionised particles or plasma in the form of solar wind. When they reach our planet's ionosphere, this results in one of the most beautiful phenomenon on our planet, aurora borealis or northern lights in northern hemisphere. This shot was taken from Myvantn lake in the northern part of Iceland. I had nearly given up my plan waiting to see active aurora. While I was driving back to hotel the northern light became active. It was one of my happiest moment in my life.

Location: Myvatn, Iceland.
