This shot was taken on my travels through the highlands of Iceland. Itís early in the morning and the fog was mythical Ö on Sprengisandur. Fortunately a few minutes later there was sunshine!!! And the view of the glaciers was breathtaking. Iím still travelling and this photo was edited on my laptop in rural guesthouse. I sure miss my computer at home and my big screen, but nothing beats traveling.

Convert from RAW.

Itís so rewarding when two off your favorite things combine with such grate results. (That is photographing and traveling.)

Love the composition and title. I think it would be more effective with more contrast. This seems a bit too gray. 7

I love this image; IMO it would be beautiful without the person included, still does not diminish.

This is super cool. I really like how dreamy this feels, and the apparent desolation of the scene. Very neat.
