I had been sitting at the shoreline taking a few pictures now and then for about 5 hours and was about to leave when the aurora just flared up and lit up the sky making 5 hours quickly turn to 6 and a half.
This time I wanted the image to be very simple, just the sky and the reflection in the still lake and I think that it works really well for images of the aurora essentially giving you double the fun. :)
Not only is the lake a beautiful location to shoot but there are many places around that makes for excellent foregroud and backgrounds so it is a place you can visit many times and come back with different images.
Fun thing was that after about 2 hours sitting there wainting an owl almost landed on a tree right next to me, it was maybe 4 meters away from where I was sitting when it discovered that I was there and flew away.
The half moon was shining from behind me when I shot this and it illuminated the mountains in the distance, only issue with shooting with the moon/sun behind you is the cast shadows, easily fixed by angling the camera higher up and crouching down when shooting, but it is something to keep in mind.
