The Botanic Garden is an outdoor collection of living plants. It was founded in 1961 and is run by the City of Reykjavík. The gardens main role is to conserve plants for education, research and delight. It conserves some 5000 plant species in eight plant collections. The collections give an idea of the enormous diversity of vegetation in the northern temperate zone.
It was lovely but dark snowy mood few nights ago at the Botanic Garden in Laugardaur valley. I really liked the display of light and darkness in the lovely snowy garden.
Wow, what a beautiful winter day we have had last Saturday here in Reykjavik. I manage to capture these captivating colors at Ægissíða seashore, close to my home.

I went out for a drive yesterday evening and the Northern Lights found me close to the golf course in Seltjarnarnes. I was able to be alone with them for 5 minutes before the auroras haunters came to the party.
