Taking Photos of the Northern Lights

Most people who visit Iceland to see the northern lights want to take a photo to show the people back home.

For taking photos of the northern lights you need a good light-sensitive camera, a solid tripod and a wide-angle zoom lens.

Bring spare batteries, try different exposure settings and please remember that the landscape makes the photos more interesting.

Please dress warm, the winter evenings and night can be cold.
