Iceland northern lights photography

Northern lights can be boring! They were not being very boring on this evening in late September. The Northern lights had been very active with impressive shapes & dancing all evening.

This particular scene arose just a few minutes after I had put my camera gear away for the night. I quickly unpacked my camera and tripod and found a good spot overlooking the glacier lagoon. I love how the shape of the Northern lights frames the glacier icebergs and mountains perfectly.
