Icelandic Battleship - Protecting the Whales

Newer Older

Thanks for all the continued comments! Here are your TOP pics: the most Popular Pictures you dig from my stream. Thanks again!

This looks nice: Large on Black

I made it to Iceland! I only had a few minutes of daylight, so I ditched my bag in my room, threw on six layers of scarves, and headed down to the harbor.

This isn't really a battleship. Iceland does not face many threats from the sea, except for when Greenland runs low on whales.

I look forward to meeting Asmundur for a crazy photo-day!

(PS - A later post says this is a Danish Triton ship that is used for Coast Guard duties.)

    i like it, and i want to get into HDR but i want to avoid the mystical, painted look. how do you recommend I set up my HDR settings? ISO and or exposure or white balance.

    I thought an Icelandic battleship had a single sail, oars, shields along the side and crewed by big blokes called Olaf! Nice picture tho'
