Thanks :)

I have taken aurora shots from my balcony so no ;)
But to but to get some foreground and get rid of the city light, yes, 10-40 min drive.
Kleifarvatn is good place (ca 30 min) but Þingvellir is wery popular and some times crowded with aurora hunters. (ca 45 min drive)
Then there is a lot of small lakes and mountains around Reykjavik, which are good places for aurora shots.

If you go through my aurora frames on flickr all of them are geotagged so you can scout some places.

Also a clever way is to search flickr for: aurora,norðurljós, þingvellir, kleifarvatn straumur, hvalfjörður, kirkjufell, reykjavik for sample and scout the result :)

Jealous. I have AuroraWatch on Twitter to see if I can try and catch this! Not helped by living in Southern England! This is a lovely capture.
