Hi Scott
Yes this is taken on Skógarströnd near Snæfellsnes on the west cost of Iceland. I hope you'll find it in your next visit, if not you can contact me :)
Thanks for the comment.

This is so well done that somehow I would say "manipulated" but I'll keep it on "genuine"

Not real. Boat would have cast some sort of shadow I think, even in this low light situation. Some stars with trails, some not?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

So wonderful. I'm in awe of the beauty in this shot. I do think it's real. What's interesting about long exposures of water is you begin to see reflections that aren't there in person, in this case, the reflection of the aurora. Really pretty shot.
