    Iceland is so amazing, landscapes and geology are unforgettable, but what makes all the difference is the light - it's just spectacular, and unlike any other light I have ever worked with.

    This is Reynisfjara Beach at sunrise, taken during a Workshop I led in Iceland last February. Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm and filters Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra.

    Nice artistic photo, but the left side looks too blue to jive with the water on the right - I'm assuming you used a grad horizontally.

    What? You are going to Iceland without me? Oh man, I need to get there sometime.

    Is this your first time?

    Yes, it is Jim. I'm going with a photographer friend who has been there at least two times before.
