Brown is the colour
This brown landscape scene captures the essence of the Vestrahorn location during the thawing season. The image observes the unique textures and patterns made by the melting ice and snow and the wetness of the basalt sand allows for a reasonable amount of reflection of the mountain – thus rendering the scene mostly brown. Not many brown images make it through my selection process, but this goes to show that it is not just the light and colours that make a great landscape, but the shapes and textures also.
My only regret is that I only took one photo of this scene. I wish I had played around with the composition, settings and exposure over 2 or 3 shots.

This South Iceland spot can be very good for Northern lights because there is a possibility of capturing a reflection of the Aurora in the landscape.
A slow shutter can be achieved with a dark filter (often called an ND filter), or by taking the photograph in low light.
