January 24, 2020 — Londrangar View Point, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland
Beside the fact that it was his photography workshop in the first place, I have Gary Hart to thank for this one in another way. His blog post today* prompted me to go back and review my own version of the same scene, and when I did, I came across this shot made about fifteen minutes earlier.
I’d overlooked it because the RAW file seemed kind of bland. But this time I saw potential that I didn’t see the first dozen times I looked at it — and with a modest amount of work in DxO and nothing but a crop in Photoshop, here it is.
Taken in the context of my last few posts, are we seeing a theme here?
Be well. Do good. Create.

*He’s right. It was cold. The thermometer reading wasn’t so bad; it was the thirty mile-per-hour wind and the stinging snow that was the source of the big chill. But the best photography happens in the worst weather.
