Iceland Aurora, 14th January 2023

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just had a long weekend in Iceland, and we really lucked-out with fine weather (albeit at -18°C and with a strong East wind blowing off the central ice cap!) and a nice Auroral display on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Here's a few captures. Canon 700d, 18-55mm lens at 18mm, 6 second exposures at ISO 1600 and 3200.

This is at Garður Old Lighthouse:


A quick animation over a period of about 7 minutes:


Here with Jupiter on the left. You don't expect to see Jupiter against the Aurora! Despite the streetlights of Garður, the lights were still bright.


The white light here is Garður New Lighthouse









The aurora reflected in the sea:


Finally, a view of our cosy cabin at Garður

Fantastic, Luke - what a trip! Looks like you had some awesome displays and wonderful photos for memories. Iceland is 100% on my list!

We’ve got another trip to northern Norway planned for March - this time to Lofoten. So hoping for plenty of Lights action then as well!
