A few images from southern Iceland, taken on 23rd & 24th March at different locations.  The variety in colour and form was amazing and a lot of fun to see.

Thanks Ian.

The unusual blue / purple aurora was near Jökulsárlόn, at a place called Gerdi and was quite faint to the naked eye. 

The more typical green curtain aurora was further west, just south of Kirkjubaejarkklaustur and was much clearer to the eye, though as you may appreciate their majesty only really becomes apparent with a camera.
