Beauty can be found in all that surrounds us, but most stands out when surrounded by more beauty in kind.

A brilliant moon lights a stranded iceberg along the Jökulsárlón Lagoon beach as aurora fill the night sky.

After arriving in Iceland that morning, we made a bee-line for the glacial lagoon to capture the northern lights. As the show started we raced across the ocean-side beach in search of interesting icebergs finding gems like this one amongst hundreds.

This is miraculous. We have been talking about images for a book on the elements. This one is what I am thinking of when I ma talking about the element ether. Great shot. The ethereal light of the sun, aurora and reflection in the ice are superb.

Thank you, it's a really special image to me and I'm still surprised I created it. Since posting it here I've reprocessed it for a more clean look, I'll hopefully upload it sometime.

Too many photos of Iceland are winning competitions. Its not fair to people who live in the Southern Hemisphere!

I'd love to go to Patagonia but it's about 4 times the cost of getting to Iceland from Denver.

Behind The Lens

Location
I capture this image along the beach next to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
Time
This was taken late at night under the light of an almost full moon.
Lighting
All the lighting is natural with the iceberg being backlit by the moon. To have such a well-lit scene with the northern lights you need not only moonlight but a strong aurora.
Equipment
I shot this with a Sony a7R and 16-35mm f/4 Zeiss Lens.
Inspiration
After my first visit to Iceland I knew I wanted to return for the northern lights. When I arrived again I searched the beach for interesting icebergs and found this incredible composition.
Editing
I performed standard edits in Lightroom with adjustments to WB, color, exposure, contrast, etc. This is pretty much how the scene looked to me though!
In my camera bag
Whether backpacking or hiking I always have my Sony a7R II, a few Zeiss lenses, and plenty of extra batteries.
Feedback
Keep your mind free when searching for more abstract compositions, try to see forms and figures in natural shapes that remind you of life.
