Gone to See Iceland in the Winter Photography Tour. Day 1: Reykjavik & Northern Lights.
When we went out it didn’t look too promising – cold, cloudy, windy, and some snow. Helga, from Tours by Locals found a spot about 10 km south of Keflavik International Airport where when the clouds cleared long enough to see this sequence. Eighty images taken with a Nikon Df camera and 24 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 1600, 24 mm, f/1.4, 1 sec) One image taken every 5 sec. The 8 second video is shown at 10 fps. It was cold and the display didn’t last that long. I can see that the weather changes quickly in Iceland, and hope for more chances over the next week. The Icelandic Met Office is a good resource for both the weather and northern lights forecasts in Iceland.
