Capture the Northern lights

Aurora lake

Aurora lake near ReykjavikThis is a small lake close to the city of Reykjavik. There is some light pollution, but facing North it is possible to get some good Northern Light exposures. The reflections can be very good for photographing Northern Lights.


Northern Full Beam

Northern lights full beamThis is a mountain road just 20 minutes from Reykjavik city center. The car with its lights on full beam might have upset some photographers, but I like the way it gives extra depth and texture to the road. Aurora photography is better with a snow covered landscape.


Mountain Aurora

Iceland mountain auroraThis mountain is on the South coast of Iceland just a few miles from Skogafoss. It was moving quickly and this was one of many photographs from this spot.


Jökulsarlon Aurora

Jökulsarlon Northern Lights The glacier lagoon in South East Iceland is a top location for Northern lights photography. However this night, the display was better in the opposite direction over the cafe building.

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.
