This was shot on a random dark road somewhere 30 minutes outside of Reykjavik that probably only our driver Siggi knows where it's located.

 

You hear stories of people going to Iceland to see the Northern Lights and not seeing them the entire time there and others getting full-blown auroras with crazy dancing lights. Well, we didn't quite get the crazy dancing lights here, but we were still quite lucky to see them on the very first night we arrived and then a second time about a week later, so no complaints.

 

This was my first time attempting to shoot the Northern Lights and I had little astrophotography experience in general so it was a bit of a struggle at first to get good results, but through lots of trial and error you have the result seen here :)

Northern Lights over sweden

Here's a nice juicy Aurora Borealis picture originally taken by Marcelo Quinan and retouched by me.

The original can be found @ www.flickr.com/photos/marceloquinan/16939908572/ .

 

I ended up changing the foreground snow colouring to remove the greenish cast caused by the lights. I also added some noise removal and selective dodging and burning and sharpening in the snow area just to make it pop from the sky

 

All this was done using Photoshop Elements 14 + my toolkit available from www.lennykphotography.com.

Thanks for checking this one out stay tuned for more!

The aurora season started last week. I missed it of course. But when I realized that the season was here I remembered that I have a few photos I did not present from the last season. This one comes from my first encounter with this phenomena. You really have to experience it to realize what a thrill it is to see the northern lights dance across the sky.

 

As always thank you for your faves, comments and views!

A nice display at Bremnes, Northern Norway. Photo details: 16mm f/2.8, 6 sec, ISO-1600

Some green Auroras above a small fishing village at Lofoten Islands.

We just got back from a one week trip to Fairbanks, Alaska, hoping to see the Aurora. It did not look promising, as each night was cloudy and some snowy.

Finally, one day we lucked out!!

Even though we did not have the greatest foreground, it did not matter.

We were thrilled and awed by the display.

Our very first Aurora, and it was everything I hoped for!

a dramatic show on groundhog day, I publicly stated that I missed the aurora and this was the result

La natura può allestire spettacoli straordinari. Il palcoscenico è immenso, le luci strabilianti, le comparse infinite e il budget per gli effetti speciali illimitato.

Experimenting with timelapse stacking - this is 61 shots stacked to create a visual of how the lights (and stars) moved during a recent show. Lots of fun to play with this technique!

Das war unglaublich gestern! Durch einen seltenen umstand gab es gestern ein relativ starkes Polarlich auf Rügen zu sehen. Naja gesehen hat man eigentlich "nur" einen hellen streifen über dem Horizont.

Ich hab auch noch ein Zeitraffer davon gemacht.

This was a spectacular night. I was so awestruck, that I didn't have the presence of mind to photograph the real show. But I did get this and a couple of others.

The aurora over Beinn Alligin, seen from the lower Munro summit of Tom na Gruagaich. The lights of Gairloch and the western Isle of Lewis can be seen in the background.

First sighting of the illusive Aurora Borealis. Lasted intensely for thirty minutes then clouded over. Amazing nonetheless!

Still the first day of photo tour in south of Iceland, on our way to our accomondation, there was suddenly a full blown show in the sky that made the fourth and last location of the day
