  1. This is the first picture where I thought, Yeah, this is Earth Porn. It’s absolutely stunning and everything beautiful about this planet we’re on. I would hang this on my wall if I could. Wow.

  2. Looks stunning. But I don’t understand how so many photographers get there and back in one piece. I mean… that’s where the Night King and his army lives isn’t it?

  3. “I was here all alone when the Aurora danced above Kirkjufell with a perfect reflection.” Sounds like a Natural Wonder quote Sean Bean would narrate for Civilization 6.

  4. I was just there a week ago! Went and stayed in Grundarfjörður just to see this mountain (beautiful little town). Unfortunately, I couldn’t get night shots because in Iceland, in late May, there is no night.

  5. All alone? Man I’d be wanting a loved one or someone with me to enjoy that. But also, some of my best travels have been alone. It’s a mixed bag… awesome experience though and beautiful picture!

  6. I guess i know where they got the red left (port) and green right (starboard) from. This looks like it is coming right at me, just like a ship/plane with thier lights on would be.

    Photo is stunning.

  7. Reflected star images on the ocean surface are slight vertical lines. My theory is that a guided camera mount was used to prevent star streaks in the sky, but the tide coming in or out during the time exposure caused streaks on the ocean surface. Could I be right?

  8. CHALMERS: Well, Seymour, I made it… despite your directions.
    SKINNER: Ah, Superintendent Chalmers! Welcome! I hope you’re prepared for an unforgettable luncheon!
    CHALMERS: Uhh…
    SKINNER: [gasp] Oh egads, my roast is ruined! But what if… I were to purchase fast food and disguise it as my own cooking? [to himself] Oh ho ho ho ho… delightfully devilish, Seymour!
    CHALMERS: Uh-
    [cue song]
    Skinner with his crazy explanations,
    The superintendent’s gonna need his medication,
    When he hears Skinner’s lame exaggerations,
    There’ll be trouble in town tonight!
    [end of song]
    CHALMERS: Seymour!
    SKINNER: Superintendent, I was just, uh… just stretching my calves on the windowsill. Isometric exercise! Care to join me?
    CHALMERS: Why is there smoke coming out of your oven, Seymour?
    SKINNER: Uhh… no! That isn’t smoke. It’s steam. Steam from the steamed clams we’re having! Mmm… steamed clams! [beat] Ooh…
    [a few moments later]
    SKINNER: Superintendent, I hope you’re ready for mouthwatering hamburgers!
    CHALMERS: I thought we were having steamed clams.
    SKINNER: D’oh, no. I said steamed hams! That’s what I call hamburgers!
    CHALMERS: You call hamburgers “steamed hams?”
    SKINNER: Yes. It’s a regional dialect!
    CHALMERS: Uh-huh… uh, what region?
    SKINNER: Uhh… upstate New York?
    CHALMERS: Really? Well, I’m from Utica, and I’ve never heard anyone use the phrase “steamed hams.”
    SKINNER: Oh, not in Utica, no. It’s an Albany expression.
    CHALMERS: I see. [beat] You know, these hamburgers are quite similar to the ones they have at Krusty Burger.
    SKINNER: Oh ho ho ho… no, patented Skinner burgers. Old family recipe.
    CHALMERS: For steamed hams?
    SKINNER: Yes.
    CHALMERS: Yeah, so you call them “steamed hams” despite the fact they are obviously grilled.
    SKINNER: Ye- hey- you know, the- one thing I should- excuse me for one second.
    CHALMERS: Of course.
    SKINNER: [YAWN] Well, that was wonderful. A good time was had by all, I’m pooped.
    CHALMERS: Yes, I should be- Good Lord, what is happening in there!?
    SKINNER: Aurora borealis?
    CHALMERS: Uh- aurora borealis!? At this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within your kitchen!?
    SKINNER: Yes!
    CHALMERS: May I see it?
    SKINNER: No.
    SKINNER’S MOTHER: Seymour, the house is on fire!
    SKINNER: No, mother—it’s just the northern lights!
    CHALMERS: Well, Seymour, you are an odd fellow, but I must say… you steam a good ham.
    SKINNER’S MOTHER: Help! Help!
