How Many of You Have Photographed the Northern Lights? What is Your Favorite Image?

I am currently in Iceland with fellow Artisan Gary Hart leading two Iceland Photo Tours this month. We have spent the past two evenings photographing Northern Lights. Here is one from last night. Processed on my small 13" MacBook Pro - can't wait to get it home onto a larger screen. Please share your favorite Aurora image! This was captured with the new Sony a7RV!

Don, that is a beautiful photo of the aurora lights! I would love to have another chance to take one again. I went to Iceland 4 years ago during November and the rain clouds covered the sky 6 out of the 7 days I was there...the last day was a pretty weak aurora 😢

In all honesty don, repeated subject deters me from shooting them. I'll try to shoot them one day, only to say I did. But I would like to shoot the Southern Lights and try to get the galaxy core in the same shot if possible. We rarely see shot from the southern hemisphere, so I want to capture those forgotten subjects.

Southern lights would be epic! I've seen some taken from Tasmania and they look epic!

I plan to go further south. The plan is to shoot everything New Zealand has to offer, and then fly to the south pole to shoot there. It's a big trip and it's far away, that why it's not that high on my bucket list.

That sounds like an awesome trip. Gary Hart and I do workshops in New Zealand but I have not been to Antarctica. Hope you make it and have a great experience!

Hey Don! I wonder if we may have crossed paths, I was there around the same time... Here are a couple of my shots from Jökulsárlón, evening of January 12th... Unfortunately I had clouds moving in but it was still a great night. Waves crashing in the distance and the seals snorting and splashing below. Pretty cool. Even better, I had the whole place to myself.

Beautiful images! We were just getting going on the 12th and were at the Snaefellsness Peninsula - not sure if that was the evening we caught the lights at Kirkjufell - would have to go back and check...

Thanks Don! I only had 3 days so I stayed around Vik and Skaftafell. Hope to see more images from your trip! Stay safe out there!
