Beautiful Photos of Auroras Shimmering Over Iceland by Stéphane Vetter

French photographer Stephane Vetter is a master of capturing gorgeous photos of landscapes at night. One of his favorite things to shoot are the northern lights (AKA aurora borealis) over Iceland, so many of his long exposure photographs show greenish glows illuminating the sky above.

Vetter’s work is so consistently top notch that NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day website has featured his images several times. Most recently, it featured this composite photograph showing the Milky Way, the aurora, Iceland’s Waterfall of the Gods, and Jupiter (seen under the galaxy band):

The photograph is a digital composite created by stitching together four individual photographs. You can view a higher-resolution version here (do yourselves a favor and check it out). This image recently won first place in the 2013 International Earth and Sky Photo Contest

Here are some of Vetter’s other aurora photographs shown on his website:

We’ve shared Vetter’s work once each of the past two years. In 2011, we featured a beautiful image of his that shows a waterfall, moonbow, and aurora captured in a single shot. Last year we shared a night sky time-lapse he created using an 8mm fisheye lens.

You can find more of Vetter’s gorgeous nighttime photographs over on his website.
