A must tour during winter. The Northern Lights can be photographed from the middle of September until the end of March. We begin this tour with a short lecture on the technical and compositional aspects of Aurora photography. What equipment is necessary, how to configure your camera, composition, foregrounds, backgrounds etc.
Then we head out to hunt for the Northern Lights. The bright lights are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as “Aurora Borealis” in the north and “Aurora Australis” in the south. Aurora displays appear in many colors although pale green and pink is the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet can also appear. The lights have many forms i.e. patches or scattered clouds, streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. Remember to dress very warm. Bring all the warmest clothes you have.
Besides the Northern Lights we will photograph landscapes on the south coast of Iceland i.e. waterfalls, black beaches, rock stacks, ice caves as well as the famous Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon with its icebergs floating on the lagoon as well as on the black beaches.
