Long Exposure Photography

Horn Wash

Vestrahorn Mountain

Vestrahorn Mountain is close the the town of Hofn in South East Iceland. The jagged peaks and black sands make this one of the best beach – mountain combinations and one of the top photo locations in Iceland. This coastal landscape photo was taken from Stokksnes Iceland.

Long exposure landscape

Long exposure photography is a useful way of communicating movement of natural objects such as clouds and water. This 10 second shutter speed has communicated the movement of the sea along with the incline and contours of the beach. This was a magic cloth photograph, so not all parts of the scene had 10 seconds of exposure. The sky would have had about 1 second exposure, the sea around 4 seconds and the foreground about 8 seconds.

Behind the mountains

This picture was taken around 3.30 on a Summer morning. This was a private tour through the Southern Highlands of Iceland. The area for our adventure is known as the Fjallabak Nature Reserve and is a huge wilderness between the Myrdalsjokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers and the Landmannalaugar hiking zone. In fact the whole area is a hiking zone and includes the world famous Laugarvegur trail which is a demanding trek through volcanic and glacier landscapes for 53km.
