As in the previous posts, it happens that when you shoot a location, you can get some different views of the subject, all of them interesting for some reasons.

Like this shot of the Krafla area, in the north of Iceland in the Mývatn region.

Krafla includes one of the two best-known Víti craters of Iceland (the other is in Askja). The Icelandic word "víti" means "hell". In former times, people often believed hell to be under volcanoes. The crater Víti has a green lake inside of it.
The Krafla area also includes Námafjall, a geothermal area with boiling mudpools and steaming fumaroles.

You can check the other shot here (and in the first comment of this post). The human figure in the earlier shot helped to scale the boiling water lakes and introduce some dinamism into the frame. This one, shot with a wide lens presents a classic landscape shot, showing a general view of the area.
Both of them give different information of the same subject, a landscape.

Al igual que en los posts anteriores, a veces sucede que al componer una imagen, se puede obtener otra información del mismo sujeto, simplemente disparando con un punto de vista diferente, pese a que todas esas variaciones pueden resultar interesantes por diversos motivos.

Como en esta fotografía del área del Krafla, en el norte de Islandia en la región del Mývatn.

En el área del Krafla está uno de los dos cráteres Víti más conocidos de Islandia (el otro está en Askja). La palabra islandesa "Viti" significa "infierno". Antiguamente, la gente creía que el infierno estaba bajo los volcanes y el Viti era su perta de entrada. El cráter de este Víti tiene un lago verde en su interior.

En la imagen anterior, que se puede ver aquí (y en el primer comentario de este post), la figura humana contribuía a escalar los compoenentes de la imagen, como los lagos de agua hirviendo y hacía más dinámico el encuadre. Por otro lado, esta nueva imagen, hecha con un objetivo gran angular desde el mirmo punto, presenta un paisaje clásico, mostrando una vista general de la zona.

Ambos aportan información diferente sobre el mismo tema, un paisaje.
