while shooting aurora at Hvítserkur in NW Iceland, it suddenly went berserk. It had been sitting there like the usual stuff for over an hour when it suddenly exploded in size, brightness, motion.
Camera ( EOS 6D ) was on tripod and I did not change the settings , so it totally over-exposed and shows the wild - berserk - event.
... ISO 5000 , 10 sec. , WB 4000, continuous shooting ( magiclantern ) , lens Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ultrawide.

(shot with Sony a7s2 and Rokinon 24mm/1.4 lens but sadly had the camera set to aps-c mode as I used another lens just moments before so it only shot at 36mm width, missing some of the show)
