Northern Lights Pictures in Iceland

Grotta Twist

This was my first session with my new Canon 5D mark 3. I only had it a few hours and there was a good Aurora forecast. I headed out to this local spot near Reykjavik to test my new camera on some Northern lights.

I tried all my usual post-processing and every step, I undid. The only processing on this image is noise reduction and sharpening! Otherwise, this is straight out of the camera.
