Hellnar is on the Snaefellsness peninsula in Iceland and plays host to a dramatic series of basalt cliffs. This image was made around midnight - these lenticular clouds just kept getting better and better. I finally had to pull myself away around 12.30 and go to bed in anticipation of a 3am wakeup for sunrise.
Lómagnúpur is an iconic sight along the southern coastal route. The last of the cliffed mountains on the drive to Vatnajökull, it is easily the most impressive. Rainy weather was moving in and the mix of dramatic clouds and the evening sun creates truly fantastic light.
Made with an ultra-wide angle lens, the unique perspective adds another element of drama to the scene. The mist wreathing the cliffs, and cascading from the top adds the finishing touch to a very unique image.
