One of the keys to success when you are photographing the Northern Lights is the surrounding landscape or ‘Earthly’ features such as lighthouses or abandoned farm buildings. There is a little bit of luck involved, because the Northern lights have to be active in the right part of the sky.

Godafoss North Iceland

Godafoss North Iceland

These beautiful light conditions can be found in North Iceland during the Summer. The reds go so deep when the sun and clouds are right and then it happens all over for the Sunrise just a few hours earlier. As a general rule, Icelandic waterfalls are facing the nearest coastline, so Northern waterfalls face North, Eastern waterfalls face East and so on.
