Northern lights photography

This aurora display was active over head and mostly in the Southern half of the sky. This made the ice beach an obvious choice as we were staying close to the Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon on a 3 day photo tour. I was set up for 30 second exposures with Magic Cloth over the sky after 10-15 seconds. This particular shot was blessed with a superb wash of ocean during the exposure. Interestingly, the top half of the image is short exposure (because I was trying to limit star trails) and the bottom half is long exposure because it shows the wash of the ocean.
