    Nothing beats the stark beauty of Iceland in winter, and the expressive power of long exposures definitely helps in creating a special mood. Vik's Spirit, 323 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 45mm and Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest Ultra filters.

    I have done some long exposures but nothing even vaguely approaching over 5 minutes. Amazing result Vieri.

    Thank you very much Alan, glad you liked it! :) Long exposures are a great expressive tool for me, when the scene allows of course ;)

    it amazed me to see the massive crowds on the other side and the nearly empty beach on this side. love the long exposure, the softness of the water and sky against the rock really makes this image.

    Sadly, people go where they tell them to go (or where they bring them, in case of organised tours). For most people it is rare to take the initiative and wander off exploring on their own... ;)

    So do I! :) Can't wait to be back, a little over a month to go! :D

    Best regards,

    Very dramatic and strong.
    Unfortunately people go where they tell them to go in all the other aspects of life...

    Great capture, really cool at such a long exposure length too. I cannot wait to get back to Iceland again myself, had way too short of a time there the last time.

    Thank you very much Jim! :)

    Thank you very much Doug! :)

    Thank you very much Andrey! :) Yes, they do - without getting into politics here on the forum, of course ;)

    Thank you very much indeed Mike, glad you enjoyed it! :) I have been going to Iceland al least twice a year for the last years, and after 7 trips and 5 Workshops led, I still haven't lost any of the excitement - in fact, every time I am more excited to go back. It's just a never ending source of imagery and inspiration!

    Best regards,

    Vieri
