Phantom of the Aurora

Sólheimasandur, Iceland:
A glacial outwash plain on a freezing, pitch dark night; the ghostly carcass of an aircraft squeaking in the wind; the dance of the Aurora in the heavens; the relentless roar of the North Atlantic at your back. The frisson experienced in this setting is unforgettable.

The wreckage was light-painted with a torch (flashlight).

See my earlier post for background information on this site.
