As landscape photography is one of my main areas of interest, I am am truly excited about this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape. Each day this week, I will share some of my favorite landscape shots.
Iceland is a truly beautiful country and just a dream for landscape photography, such as this shot that I captured last year of the view across the Siglufjörður on the north coast of Iceland.
The road in this area follows the coast line, which means it traces the fjords that are prevalent here. Each of these fjords has its own character, with some of the smaller ones without settlement and the larger ones with small towns and villages. The fjord often provides a natural harbor and shelter from the Atlantic storms.
The light off the peak made for a bit of magic in this afternoon image.
This image was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III with an EF 24-105 f/4L lens (circular polarizer attached). This was a series of images with the mean exposure value at 1/100 second at f/11 at 200 ISO; the 3 images were at 0 EV, -1 EV and +1 EV. Photomatix Pro was used to create the final image.
