A picture of the Northern Lights flickering over a snow-covered Iceland mountain top has been chosen as one of the twenty best photos of the year by National Geographic.

The magazine publishes a daily ‘Photo of the Day’ selected from images taken by its in-house photographers and sent in from amateur photographers all over the world.

A picture from Iceland – entitled ‘Dancing with the Moon’ by Andrew George – has been selected as one of the very best ‘Photo of the Day’ from 2015, and keeps company with other spectacular images from places as varied as Estonia, Madagascar and the Caribbean.

You can see the Icelandic winner – as well as all of the other images selected – on the National Geographic website here.
