This picture has been sitting rejected and all alone in my archives for some years. The location is an obscure coastline in Hornvik, part of Hornstrandir. Some say this part touches the Arctic circle, but I am not sure. One thing I am sure of though is that despite the low visibility, the arctic circle must be in this photograph (or rather this photo could be from the Arctic circle)… even though it looks like “Nothing”. The blue in the picture gives a sense of an abyss. The mist had us stranded for a couple of days with no way of flying back and no point of doing much exploring.
I gave it a letter-box crop. In the original, you can see the top of the outcropping rocks. I decided that cropping the tops off gives the image more mystery, it also allows attention to fall on the swirling water action around the mostly submerged rocks in the foreground. This is an effect of the long exposure as the sea gently lapped against the shore.
Time to say good bye to Stokksness for another month. Vestrahorn mountain always delvers some beautiful scenes and not to mention the interesting weather.
We were making our way down to the glacier tongue at Svinfallsjökull when I spot the colour in the clouds above Kristinatindur.
Godafoss the Waterfall of the Gods is a fine location for photographers, both Summer and Winter.
