View above Botnar Hut during the Laugavegur trek in my Workshop in Iceland . June 2011 - 20-29
There's an unspeakable feeling floating around .. This was almost night , a sort of long blue hour with ominous clouds and a very quiet atmosphere . I was standing in front of this Immense glacier , quite close to the Eyjafjallajökull volcano .. Covered with layers of Ashes ..
The upper part of the image (left mountain) appeared as a painting to me ( strange texture ) without any photoshop treatment .
I've used a 70-200 mm F4 L IS with ND grad filter . Warm white balance .
We were backpacking at the summit of this wonderfull mountain : Mont Buet ( 3100 m ) with a magical 360° View.
just before sunset .. we were passing through clouds .. Light was invisible .. then the sun came just for 2 or 3 minutes .. creating a stunning vision of these mountains .. framed by layers of clouds .
200m High canyon in this surreal moss landscape . I tried to stand in front of the picture to show you the size of the place but it's quite difficult to realize . You can also see other people from the workshop on the next hill .
Vision that I like .. I know that it's not THE shot , for many reasons .. But there is floating unspeakable feeling that I have, with this surfacing snowy mountain and the clouds framing the view .. As we can imagine a hidden realm beyond.. This is with 70-200 mm , the mountain is Huge
