Sweep over Mt. Esja

Another one from our amazing Aurora session. Shot just outside Reykjavík. We where planing on another location but while driving to there the Aurora suddenly became really active. We stopped by the side of the road, ran outside and set up our gear because we knew it would only last a few minutes. The Aurora was sweeping across the whole sky so it was kinda hard to point our cameras as the Aurora was constantly changing its location in the sky.


Shot with my newly purchased Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens. This one is shot @10mm:

ISO400, f3.5, 15sec and with manual focus set to infinity as it was to dark for the focus system.


To bad there wasn´t any moonlight that night for light on the foreground so I had to boost it in PS.
