Kirkjufell Panorama by cwaddell Kirkjufell Panorama by cwaddell
We came here on our first night in Iceland. The wind was very strong which make it hard to get sharp shots and keep the tripod steady, but I managed to get a few I was happy with. This was made up of 6 vertical photos - 3 for the land & 3 for the sky, then merged in Photoshop. On the left the sun is setting, on the right the moon is rising.

Wow, my first Daily Deviation :D
A big thankyou for the DD suggestion and feature, and thanks to everyone for the views, comments and favourites :D

Update: I recently found out I won the Landscape category with this photo in Michael The Maven's 2012 International Photography Contest on michaelthemaven.com :D

Awesome awesome work. I have always wanted to visit Iceland, which is in the other side of the world :D Is it easy to navigate around?
Reply
:iconcwaddell:
cwaddell Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks :D
It's pretty easy to get around, but can take a long time driving between some of the places.
When I was there our group had a superjeep, so it was pretty easy to go anywhere though we mainly just stuck to the main roads.

I see, thanks for the reply! So basically you could get to all the awesome places such as this waterfall not far from the main roads? That'll be awesome if so :D

:iconcwaddell:
cwaddell Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I think one or two places we went you'd need a 4x4 to get to easily, but otherwise I think the majority of the places all had proper tarmac roads or good dirt roads to them.
This waterfall was slightly off the main road (you can see it on the strip of land between the water on the right) but think it just had a small dirt road for the last bit.

What beautiful scenery. No offence but I always thought Iceland was covered in ice always. Or was it Greenland?
Reply
:iconcwaddell:
cwaddell Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I think that's Greenland. While I was in Iceland there wasn't any snow apart from on some of the higher mountains.
