Back in February 2020 I was touring around northern Iceland with my friend Bryan. On our second to last day we went out scouting for a possible location to shoot the northern lights during our last night out if they’d appear. We had already had a couple of nights of light in the tour but of course we wanted more. We found this very nice little church not far from our hotel and I snapped one polaroid just in case we wouldn’t come back out if the conditions weren’t right. I’ll post that one later. When the night turned out to have mostly clear skies we decided to head back out to the church and set up our gear. We immediately got these very faint lights, barely visible with the naked eye but our digital cameras could pick them up. I didn’t even try with the polaroid (actually Fuji packfilm) because I need rather strong lights of the 100iso film is supposed to catch them in an exposure of 10-20 minutes. The lights never really got any stronger so after a few hours we decided to wrap up and head back to our hotel, but I decided I wanted at least one night shot of the church, even without the lights. Just as I was exposing I saw with my naked eyes a tiny strip of northern lights appearing just over the church, right behind the cross. It was still too faint for he to hope the 100iso film would pick it up, but to my surprise it actually did. I wouldn’t say this is a great picture of the northern lights, but I do think they add a bit to a nice little night shot of a nice little wooden church in northern Iceland.
