Adventure photographer Chris Burkard is an expert at photographing surfers who ride the coldest, most punishing waves on the planet.
He’s used to battling the elements in order to get the perfect shot, but one fateful storm in Iceland nearly broke him. Still, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture an epic adventure under the greatest light show on earth.
With the storm still happening, they wanted to trek through harsh Icelandic roads to find the storm-produced surf.
And much to their luck, after some extremely arduous and life-threatening drives on impassable roads, they found the Northern Lights out to greet them in the bitter cold.
