This photo shows Vesturhorn from the beaches of Stokksnes. This corner of the beach has interesting rocks and some very large swells. This is because the sand is so flat that the ocean is very shallow for about a mile out to sea. I had to be a real wave dodger as I ran down to the rock between wave surges and had about 10 seconds to compose and shoot before the next big wave.
I am shooting with a 24mm prime lens and a 6 stop ND filter so that I could get a longer exposure. I managed 6 seconds at f/11. The sky would have had only a half second exposure as I was using the Magic Cloth.
The one thing we agreed on was to leave our tents erect and stay another night at the falls.
This is a strange volcanic lake. It goes very deep in places and used to be the deepest lake in Iceland.
I demonstrate a lightroom preset on this photo of Brunahorn in East Iceland.
