I should probably start with the headliner - I'm engaged! James proposed under the Northern Light on the Tuesday night of our trip - it was utterly perfect, and the only night we actually saw them, but more on that, and probably more on the ring and wedding plans later.
This is the glacier lake along the south coast. This bit is in between the glacier and the sea - it was stunning (and also a pretty good location to take a ring photo!). The water perfectly reflected the mountains behind it and the shades of blue were absolutely breath-taking.
This is the beach! Black sand again of course, but this is where the glacier joined the sea - lots of chunks of ice have washed up and all are completely different! See my instagram for more!
Finally, the Northern lights. They appeared about 8.30pm quite faintly but by 9pm they were in full force - shades of green, purple and red dancing and spinning above us - the most amazing thing I'd ever seen - until I turned round and James was on one knee...
We didn't see them again in the week as the cloud cover was high and the aura activity was low, but this night was perfect.
