Iceland E-M1 - markhumpage
Aurora over Blue Lagoon Geothermal pools. Olympus E-M1, 12mm m4/3 lens. 3 exposures -F2, ISO 400,  13.6s/13.4s/9.8s
Good solar geomagnetic forecast (and clear skies) allowed for Aurora opportunities. During the daytime I located a good foreground subject (Geothermal pool with its milky blue water) with a view to returning later that evening. This is a 3 shot landscape stitch over the geothermal pool. It was composed & shot with the live bulb mode which allowed me to perfectly expose the Aurora brightness for each frame. A very useful tool indeed for this subject (especially when stitching). I shot numerous images of the aurora using the m4/3 12mm lens & the 4/3 lenses (8mm & 7-14mm) and the m4/3 12mm won hands down in exposure speed & quality. It handled the low light far quicker and better than the 4/3 series I found.
