The last light of a warm sunset at the summit of Mount Thabor in french alps... A great moment looking at these growing shadows over the cliffs... The night was clear and quite cold at 3178m high...

The volcanic area near the Landmannalaugar in Iceland... I remember the vast, colorfull and desertic feeling of the place... The weather was quite good, but really cold with constant wind coming from the north...
The feeling of walking on another planet...

Hello,

Here is the first photograph of my last trip to Iceland in september 2010... An unbelievable sight on the road to Askja, a huge volcanic area in the inner highlands of the north Iceland.

The fall colors on the vegetation were simply amazing. We were here in a totally desertic area...no human presence at 80km round at least. Just the light, the wind, the cold and the colors of this landscape, an amazing remember. The weather was quite cold (aprox. 0 to 3C) and the first snowfalls were not so far. The last gasp of life before the winter...

Thank you!
Xavier

Full view is highly recommended :)

Long exposure at dusk, over a small lake in the Cerces mountains, in French Alps. The clouds were moving in my direction pushed by a strong wind, creating this impression of movement with the long exposure.

Sunset light over the solfatares of Gunuhver hot spot in Iceland... I remember the sulfur odor, the cold wind and the warm light... Icelandic light.

Hello all,

Here is a picture from my last trip to Iceland... these are huge blocks of ice on the Jokulsarlon beach... These blocks come from the widest glacier in Europe : Vatnajokull.
We had a strange light this morning, there was high clouds in the sky, creating a solar halo around the sun.
I used a B&W nd400 filter for this picture (thanks Alex ;) ). This filter gives a strong warm balance to the colors that I wouldn't totally correct... The sky was more gray in reality, but I think these colors suits quite well the scene.

Hello!

Here is a picture taken last week in the french alps from the summit of Saulire in the valley of Meribel.
I liked how the way the sweet light illuminated the snowy mountains, under the dark clouds...
