Captured this one while hunting for Aurora last February. This crater lies near Reykjavks skiing area Blfjll.

The area is all covered with lava from the many volcanos and craters around. Thank god that volcanic activity in this area died out centuries ago because some of the lava runs through the Reykjavk area. Lets hope it wont start again.

Another great shot from Iceland. No wonder this is one of the happiest place on earth (as per the book I'm currently reading, The Geography of Bliss).
It looks very much like its namesake. Well done!

I have scored this well, the clouds (if that is what it is) draws you to the mountain, the only criticism might be that is image is almost too simple, too few elements to engage you...this will do well.

fantastic work - the sharpness of the points of light in the stars - the smoothness of the clouds and the barren feeling of the ground really create a memorable image
