We’ve been treated to incredible displays of the Northern Lights on this trip to Iceland. We arrived at Stykkishólmur, where we’d planned to stay a few nights and as darkness started to fall, it wasn’t just the cathedral that became illuminated, the first signs that the Aurora was once again active could be seen in the sky and a plan was hatched to try to capture an image or two at Kirkjufellsfoss, about twenty-five minutes out of town.
As we arrived, the Northern Lights were still very active and once in position, I began taking pictures. It was very cold, muddy and rather uncomfortable down by the waterfall but I captured the images I’d hoped to and with some blending of exposures in Photoshop this was the result. All very alien looking and other-worldly..
