Thank you for the very nice comments.

Driving the ring road in Iceland we came upon this sunburst in a delta-type area in a valley at the end of a fjord. It was simply beautiful, so I slammed on the brakes and did the best I could to capture it.

I know it's not your typical skyline, but I just love the scene. Thanks again.

What? No kneejerk comments about how you needed to put the horizon on the thirds? I think this works splendidly cut in half. It feels so expansive, much larger than its 800px ;-) Coloring is vibrant but not over the top. Congrats on top 20!

Although stunning and beautiful, this is more of a landscape photo and not a skyline.

Of all the flat horizons with dramatic clouds, this is the first to really work. The balance of textures and mood in ground and sky really pull the eye to the horizon. The framing really works with fairly un differentiated grass low and the same level of cloud above, then cutting in the drama in the middle. A subtle drama.

You have captured lots of great detail in your shot and the exposure looks spot on to me. This would make a great print.
