Moments of Calm

Kirkjufell

Iceland

 

During our trip in 2010, Marianne and I spent 2.5 days on Snaefellsnes Peninsula of which 2.0 days were in constant rain and greyness. I had gone jogging in the inclement weather and found a still pool of water just outside of Grundarfjordur near the waterfall from which to take this shot. We finally were in luck with the last moments of sunset on our last day there. Interestingly, Marianne and I often wander off separately when we're shooting landscapes and we took this shot almost to the exact composition at different times during the evening without knowing it!

 

Another point of interest is what people think about the practice of cloning out objects from landscapes? I can understand cloning out flies from a bride's face on a wedding shoot, unwanted telephone lines for an open inspection shoot , but in landscape shoot? For instance - the small barn at the base of kirkjufell, telephone lines in a village scene walking in the himalayas, roads winding through a mountain scene? In my opinion, they tell part of the story of the scene and I'm very loathe to remove anything from a landscape scene I've shot except for dustspots. What do you think:?
