Jökulsarlon is my number one Iceland location. My most dramatic pictures frequently come from Jökulsarlon lagoon and ice beach, so it is difficult to refute that Jökulsarlon is my absolute favourite for landscape photography. But since I am there so much, my feelings have become numb to the extraordinary landscape. I have clients pulling on my sleeve in energy since they see a seal and I see the same seal, but with less excitement. I have to remind myself that if I become bored with Jokulsarlon, there is something truly amiss with my head, now and then I am slightly bored. So this Jökulsarlon aurora experience, however really woke up my senses again. I have created such a large gallery of photography at Jökulsarlon including numerous delightful Auroras reflecting in the still waters among the icy bergs. I began to feel envious of clients who were getting their first encounters.
Night of Ghosts was taken on one of our Winter workshops, this was January 2015. I took around 10 pictures with a similar atmosphere. However in the wake of making this photo, something made me quit taking the photographs and simply stand and take in the scene. Those Northern Lights and their appearance were clear and they were moving nicely, however there was a slight shroud of sea mist twisting among the icebergs which made them look like apparitions. I was there at the time with a particularly unbelievable scene before me. I might have seen all that on the off chance that I was just mindlessly pressing the button to take the photos, I just stopped shooting, took a deep, mindful breath and became present in the moment. These couple of moments were only for me. The image above was the image previously and it doesn’t mirror my experience despite the fact that it is useful for the viewer to see a portion of my experience.
Night of Ghosts marks a special experience for me, but you can enjoy it also with this impressive Northern Lights photo print. This poster has a partly glossy, partly matte finish and it’ll add a touch of sophistication to any room.
