Fjallsárlón (v2), Iceland

Looking for tranquility.

 

The overcast sky in conjunction with a low camera position allowed for wide-angle shots, taking in the whole scenery with foreground details. The almost complete absence of wind, on third day I went here, allowed for calm impression I tried to get.

 

The place is Fjallsárlón in Iceland, a glacier lagoon right next to the more famous Jökulsárlón, both being wonderful places.

 

The picture, recommended to watch using large black magic, was taken with the Nikkor 16-85mm/3.5-5.6G VR at 85 mm and f8 for optimum sharpness.

 

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. :)
