Stefano Pellegrini spent a week in Iceland chasing the northern lights.

“Opting for total freedom of movement to track clear skies each night, I lived in a car, planning my itinerary day by day instead of booking hotels in advance,” Pellegrini said.

“The strategy paid off, and I captured the aurora on four out of seven nights.

“Arriving at the location after dark, I parked the car and prepared my sleeping bag.

“Despite being up since 4am, I set my alarm clock to wake me every hour in anticipation of a KP5 forecast for the night.

“I woke up at 2.30am on my own and spotted green hues from the car window.

“I hurried out, shooting frantically to seize the opportunity.

The final image is the photographer’s second attempt.

“Initially, I framed the arch from the front down on the rocky shore but I wasn’t satisfied with the result,” Pellegrini said.

“After a night of running around various locations, at 5am in the morning, I returned to the beach for another composition.”
