New years eve is a bit crazy in Iceland. Many decades ago Icelanders developed a tradition that has become a sensation. Everyone everywhere in the whole country byes fireworks and shoots them up at the same time, around midnight.  In Reykjavík, the whole sky lightens up thousands participate in every corner of the city.  The result is probably the largest fireworks show on planet earth that lasts about twenty to thirty minutes. This year we joined hundreds of Icelanders and tourists that gather by Hallgrímskirkja in downtown Reykjavík to celebrate the new year. This photo was taken at twelve o’clock midnight when 2015 disappeared, and 2016 entered. It was quite a show.
