January 24, 2020 — Londrangar View Point, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland I think I’ve only done this once before: posted that same frame twice in a row, with the second being a re-do. There’s a story. When I posted this picture the other night, I decided at the last minute that the image was too dark. It was late and I was in a hurry, so I simply went back to the 16-bit Photoshop file and […]

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 […]

January 25, 2020 — Kirkjufellsfoss, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Ten minutes before sunrise. No place does blue hour like Iceland.

January 24, 2020 — Londrangar View Point, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Taken a few minutes earlier than the one in the post before last, this shows the unaltered colors that the camera recorded. I had previously thought the color was a distortion of reality and blamed it on a brand of filter I’d never used before, but no — the water really is that color.* The next post will move us forward.

January 25, 2020 — Kirkjufellsfoss and Kirkjufell Mountain, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland It was a dark and stormy morning. Sun would rise in another fifteen minutes. The wind was… impressive. Posted from the departure lounge at Keflavik International Airport. (Nikon D850, Tamron SP 15–30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.1; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

January 24, 2020 — Londrangar View Point, Snæfellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Welcome to Iceland. I’ve never, ever experienced a passport-control officer smiling genuinely and welcoming me before. It happened here. A cold country gave a very warm welcome. Iceland is like that. Iceland is indeed cold in the winter. There are storms. There are incredible sights to see and photograph. These sea stacks have been captured by thousands of photographers before. Today it was my turn. […]
