My back yard

I took this back in April 2006 for a DPC challenge, the theme was "Window Framed". It was and probably will be by FAR the most effort I have ever put into taking a photograph for DPC, cause this shot is not a composite.

 

The story basically is that I went out to the countryside with Andri and Steinar hugi to photograph through this window that Andri was able to get from the place he works, Husasmidjan. I could only take this photo that particular day since I was busy the whole weekend, luckily the 20th was the "first day of summer" here in Iceland and is a national holiday. I was still busy in the afternoon though so we had to get up at around 5:30 am to go driving out in the countryside with this window in the trunk. Anyway, we got to Gullfoss at around 9 pm and fortunately we were the only people around, if people had seen them holding up this window for me to photograph through it they probably would have thought us to be pretty out of it. We then went to Geysir where Andri took a shot through the same window and then found a summer cottage Steinar Hugi photographed and sent to the same challenge.

 

It was pretty fun, I had forgotten about this shot and even though the angle seen outside this window makes no sense and it could have looked cooler, I am totally happy with this shot :)

 

Here is Andri´s shot and here is Steinar´s.
