What incredible depth and beauty that was captured in this photo.

Behind The Lens

Location
Taken in Iceland, mountain Kirkjufell
Time
Night shot , taken after midnight at 00,18 min Am
Lighting
I was very happy to capture a series of aurora pictures that nigh. Aurora was changing it's shape and thanks to it I took different compositions within 20 minits of shooting on the place. In this picture I was grateful for the connection of aurora and the mountain tip as it looks like an eruprion of light.
Equipment
Canon 5DM2, Canon lens 18-40mm, tripod Manfrotto
Inspiration
Untouched and beautiful places of our wonderful planet are my inspiration for each time as I am going to take pictures
Editing
Almost no processing applied, only usual Raw development with small adjustment of clarity, contrast, highlights and darks
In my camera bag
My canon 5DM2, lenses 18-40, 24-70, 70-300 and set of different round filters
Feedback
Idea should be the first, in my opinion, then we should carefully chose a place to photograph and be on the place at the right time. Regarding night pictures, it's important for me to know a place during a day light as it's difficult to find interesting composition at night.
