I rarely watch a popular evening show which is on nearly every night on our national television. I was a bit late with my dinner tonight and as I sat there with the sound turned off, suddenly a very familiar image flashed on the screen.
I was certain that this was one of the photos I had taken of the Aurora and this was confirmed by watching the show on their Internet broadcast at 17:20.
I am delighted that RÚV chose one of my photos for their show, it has now been seen by an entire nation, I wonder how many photographers can say that !
UPDATE: My investigations into how RÚV came to use my photo have revealed that when the icelandic word for Aurora – Norðurljós – is entered into Google Search, my photo is the seventh photo that comes up in the search results under images!
It appears that RÚV staff may have simply done a search for an Aurora image and grabbed the first image they liked.
This is an amazing coincidence, especially considering that I was watching TV when the clip was shown for a few seconds only– the Internet sure works in mysterious ways.
