This is an image which I have re-edited following the 2009 trip to Iceland. It's always an interesting exercise to revisit old favourites and update the 'look' of the image to current perceptions. I think one's pereceptions of scenes also changes depending on the tools you know you possess in order to give images their final result. This was taken on a day with dramatic shifting light but somehow, back in 2009, the original edit didn't do it justice. I hope this version does!

That is a beautiful shot.
I must ask..
When you say that you re-edited this picture, did you add the small church or does it actually exist that close to the water?

The reedit was just for contrasts and lighting - the contents of the image are all there - including the church :) it was taken at a long'ish focal length so the compression of planes makes it look closer to the water than in actually was

One for the #PhotographyIsPoetry group. Everything works together to justify the title including the wide screen format.
