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 extraordinary photo was taken in the middle of the night in South Iceland. It was taken on a full moon night in October just before 1 a.m. Believe it or not, the post processing challenge was to darken the image to make it look a little bit more like a night photo. The moon was behind me…
For Iceland based photographers, photographing the Milky Way is generally something we do while we are waiting for the Northern Lights to appear.
This Northern lights photograph teaches me to be humble at this time in my life. It represents the place I am at in the universe, and maybe you too?
