An alien landscape. by LordLJCornellPhotos An alien landscape. by LordLJCornellPhotos
A view from the top of Pokahryggur not too far from Landmannalaugar in the southern highlands of Iceland. This is at a height of 927m and winter was beginning with a fierce wind and some snow falling. There is a very clearly defined edge to the foreground where the land just falls away. The landscape beyond is just amazing.

Truly incredible capture, LJ!  It does look like an alien landscape.  Martian, perhaps...  Love it.

I do agree with previous comments; both "fantastic" and a painting!!
I note the well defined edge, but also the "softness" of this rugged landscape that has been weathered by constant wind, rain and snow... YES - another stunning shot Lawrence!! :wow:
