This was one of the last shots of a beautiful evening just outside Grundarfjordur when the weather finally began to clear. The previous 2 days had been washed out with solid rain. I used manual blending of 4 exposures and a photomatix produced image in this one. In coming weeks, I hope to present a video on Iceland flicking through every picture I took there in 2010 case people were curious!
This shot was taken just before our penultimate weekend in Iceland in 2010. The whole night had been washed out with rain and most of the morning. But toward the end of the stormy weather, the sun peeked through the clouds giving rise to this rainbow which lasted for several hours as we made our way with Orvar to Jokulsarlon. This specific mountain is located in the south east of Iceland nearing the approach to Skaftafell National Park.
