In Photos: 2016 Travel Photography Competition
Night, stars, action …
On our final night at Stykkishólmur in the west we were treated to clear skies . The pulsing light from a nearby lighthouse punctuated the darkness but high above us a much more spectacular light show took place. Like fireworks from heaven, the dancing lights of the aurora borealis flood the sky with blue, green and purple waves. A fitting end to an extraordinary trip.• Alastair’s prize was a self-drive trip to Iceland with Discover the World, which offers a 7-night Northern Highlights trip (£1,229) and the 14-night Around Iceland tour (£2,057) excl flights
