Cold and Still by erezmarom Cold and Still by erezmarom
A Panorama taken at the climax of the pink Alpine glow we were so lucky to have. The combination of the low angle of the sun and the snowy coating (the volcano itself is, of course, black) is another proof that winter is the best time of the year to shoot in Iceland.
rfajkull is the highest mountain and volcano in Iceland. One of the most feared as well, as it has violently erupted twice in historical times. Prior to the first eruption the area around it was challed Hra (shire), being green and lush. After the eruption, the area was flooded and covered in ash and volcanic debris. For decades after the eruption the area was uninhabited and since been called rfi - badlands.

If you'd like to experience and shoot this magical location, among many other incredible icy sceneries, you're welcome to join my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop taking place January 2013. The workshop is co-guided by renowned local Icelandic mountaineer and pro photographer Skarphedinn Thrainsson, and it will bring you to the most amazing locations for landscape photography in south Iceland.
Please click the link for more details, and contact me with any questions about the workshop.

I can't find words to express how beautiful this photograph is. Spectacular, breath taking. It's a treat when photographers take these kinds of pictures when no one else would or would even think about it.
