fabulous sky, love the last hint of warmth being hurried out of the way for the storm. I like seeing the cars and bridge also , everything in perspective, Welcome back !
26 Jan 2009 5:30am
Beautiful nice to have you back

The expansiveness allow for such a sense of "what's to come..." The bridge and cars hint at movement and even more expanse than is shown. The thing that impressed me so very much is the heaviness of the earth itself. It balances the evolving sky with its darkness.
Tell me, is this volcanic earth? It has the same look as the southern part of the Big Island of Hawaii (much of which is now lava flow or black sand).

@San G.: hello Sandy! thank you and yes -- Iceland is relatively 'fresh' volcanic flow, the southern rim being some of the newest indeed (where this location is located) and produces the expansive lava flows and black sand beaches along the famous southern coastlines!!
the light was just extraordinary on this day -- and strangely most of my shots are also from this day...! a happy coincidence, though i will be the first to admit i like exotic lighting conditions, both for photography and also to 'live' in... at home, my lights are always off and i live in the dim glows of the computer screen! strange i know! i am definitely a gen x-er!!! :) cheers to you!!
Hay dj good to see you again:-)
Once again a stunning image, perfect:-)

Fantastic shot, the colours and lighting are marvelous
26 Jan 2009 7:34pm
Awesome light. The contrasting colors colors really create "strange" light conditions, but at the same what makes this photo special. Another stunning shot mate!

27 Jan 2009 2:06am
Welcome back, such an amazing shot beautifully composed love the colors and rays of light in the sky, so beautiful
27 Jan 2009 2:16am
Great photo, like how you can see the storm approaching with the sun breaking through in the back.
In regards to trips, no not in the nearest future, too expensive
27 Jan 2009 2:27am
Truly a wonderful place !
Spectacular landscape and colors !
27 Jan 2009 2:35am
Beautiful capture! I love the weather pattern off in the distance, snow on it's way. So different colour shades in the sky. The cars are great for scale!
27 Jan 2009 3:56am
Very good light for this splendid panoramic. We can see the snow/rain falling from the left cloud in the horizon.
27 Jan 2009 4:01am
Interesting raw environment, there doesn't seem to be much light DJ, maybe because of the approaching snow ?
27 Jan 2009 5:02am
Excellent colouring of the picture. Well done.
27 Jan 2009 6:52am
Wow! Jaycee, what an amazing sight!

Always sensitive to the beauty of the nature.
27 Jan 2009 10:26am
Nice view...I like how I can see the squall approaching off in the distance.

27 Jan 2009 3:59pm
excellent shot. the light is fantastic. the way it hits the cars is really something. this looks like it could be a still, perhaps the final frame, from a commercial for the car company... "live the adventure in a _____."
27 Jan 2009 10:29pm
@grant: cheers grant and hehe -- funny you say that, i had the exact same thought!! it looks like a product placement shot!! i think it is the evenness of the lighting!!! :)
Again such an amazing shot of a this beautiful island. The composition and light are such georgeous as are the rain clouds. We can see from every single shot that you enjoyed your time in Iceland a lot.
28 Jan 2009 8:16am
