Landmannalaugar, Iceland

Another picture of Landmannalaugar. Actually the same scenery as my first one. Yes, I am that boring.

 

Icelandic weather is tough for a photographer. You need time to wait for the right light. Not just the time of the day, but the time until the clouds are like you want them, letting the sun through or not. And if it takes two weeks, it takes two weeks.

 

What I like about this picture, and which is why I took it at a different focal length compared to the first one, is the sun coming partially through, creating even more variations in the colours of the mountain. These colours are formed by rhyolite and liparite laid bare by erosion processes.

 

The picture was taken with my Nikkor 16-85 at 46mm, f8.

 

If you are interested, feel free to check out my whole Iceland set at my homepage, or rather the current state it is in. My favorites from there will get here onto flickr. Yes, I take proposals. :)
