September Aurora

September Aurora

Red Aurora

This night photograph was taken on an October night on the banks of Jökulsarlon, South East Iceland. This partly cloudy night was the only time I ever experienced a level 10 Aurora. The lights in the sky actually cast a shadow. At this moment, much of the night sky was red. You can see a red huge on the distant glacier, this is not noise but it is light from the aurora.

Create your own website

Are you thinking of building your own photo website? There are so many tools to help photographers display and sell their photos online.  Having your own website is like owning a property, you don't have to pay commission to third party online galleries  Siteground are the best webhosts I have used in my 15 years of running icelandaurora.  They are currently having a sale.  Use this LINK to get a massive discount on hosting plans.

Long exposure

This was a 48 second shutter speed with a Magic Cloth. The cloth was brought down over the sky after about 20 seconds. Then the glacier lagoon with the floating icebergs had about twice as much exposure. Luckily there was not too much movement of the glacier ice during the long exposure.

Vestrahorn Blue Pool

The grass anchors itself in the black sand forming tussocks from the drifting sand. Small pools form after heavy rain or melting snow.

We checked out the Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall earlier in the day and there were 6 – 10 tourists walking through the scene at any one time.
