Kirkjufellsfoss

Folks seem to like my #aurora images and I could use a serotonin nudge today. Maybe leave a comment? This is an image of Kirkjufell mountain (“Church Mountain”) and the waterfall near it, Kirkjufellfoss, under some stunning aurora in western Iceland on the Snæfellsnes peninsula, 2016. The image is a symmetrical mirror panorama created from a single frame. What image do you see in the swirling aurora? I see a falcon. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #northernlights #norðurljós #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld#Earth_portraits#modernvoyage #earthpix#WHPinspired #Electric_Shotz #photoartcrew#ArtOfVisuals

Árnes Hostel

I know it’s a self portrait but is it a #selfie if you’re not holding the camera and/or not looking into the lens? Anyway, here’s Wonderwall. —Iceland, Þjórsárdalsvegur, near Árnes under a stunning level KP5-6 aurora. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights #norðurljós #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld #portraitmood #theportraitpr0ject #Earth_portraits #DiscoverPortrait #igpodium_portraits #PortraitPage

Seyðisfjörður

Northern lights (Norðurljos) dance above 2-3 meter snow drifts on this road between Egilsstaðir og Seyðisfjörður Iceland 2014. This road would be closed for more than a week just two days later although, and I mean this with all sincerity, I’d happily welcome a week-long stranding in Seyðisfjörður and if you have the time I heartily recommend a visit. This image was a 5-10 second exposure where I painted the snow with a red-gelled light. I liked the idea of pairing the red with the green in the sky. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld #lightpainting

Reykjanes

My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography shared a wonderful photo of the The Rock at Reykjanes yesterday. A few years ago Kjartan showed me this rock in person on my first of a 30-day odyssey in this stunning country. Here it is in situ under the aurora.

Kirkjufell

I've shared a version of this before from my preposterous 50-hour trip to Iceland in December but I've been working and playing with it. Years ago in the darkroom I would often make prints of the same negative both straight and flipped horizontally as a way to trick my brain into a more clinical observation of the image's faults but I quickly fell in love with what happened when I abutted the images next to each other. In #woodworking, another passion of mine, doing this with thin wood veneer is called book matching. I tried this with my latest image from Kirkjufell and, well, here it is. I hope it inspires you!. . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #nightscaper #beautifuldestinations #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #MyTinyAtlas #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights

Arnes, Iceland

I was getting sleepy and thinking about turning in around 10:00 when my electronic gadgets started going bananas with alerts about terribly exciting things happening in the upper atmosphere. This was for real! I tossed on some clothes, threw my equipment into the car and set out on a drive northward up the no.32 road towards the Hjálparfoss waterfall. Midway between Árnes and Hjálparfoss the sky began to light up with eery ribbons of green and red light so bright that it was reflecting off of the road markers and glistening snow.. . . #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #nightphotography #nightscaper #astrography_ #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights

Egilsstaðir

Overlooking the town of Egilsstaðir in eastern iceland. The northern lights were not at their best but they were beautiful. I was too tired to drive to anywhere truly dark and I was on my way to the hostel in Seyðisfjörður so I had the opportunity to experiment. This image was made by panning the camera on the tripod while looking down on the town from the top of a hill.. . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightphotography #nightscaper #astrography_ #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights

Hjálparfoss

I was getting sleepy and thinking about turning in around 22:00 when my electronic gadgets started going bananas with alerts about terribly exciting things happening in the atmosphere. I did a little quick research and then decided that this was for real! I tossed on some clothes, threw my equipment into the Suzuki and set out on a drive northward up the #32 towards the Hjálparfoss waterfall. Midway between Árnes and Hjálparfoss the sky began to light up with eery ribbons of green light so bright that it was reflecting off of the road markers into my eyes.. . #aurora #northernlights #iceland #visiticeland #beautifuldestinations #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightphotography #nightscaper #stars #astrography_ #artsyvision
