Thingvellir by erezmarom Thingvellir by erezmarom
Žingvellir is pure natural beauty. This wonderful lake is comfortably situated very close to Rejkyavik, and so we headed there right after breakfast, to watch the sunrise.
The lake was perfectly calm. It was cold outside, but we couldn't help but enjoy wading on the snowy banks, admiring the striking colors of the vegetation, and the constantly-changing clouds and light. A long exposure gave this image the dreamy feel Žingvellir had given me.

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.
Please click the link for more details, and contact me with any questions about the workshop.

Wow. Just saw this over on dpreview - I absolutely adore that dreamy look with the soft light, the snow covering that little island there, the light reflecting on the water and all that.

This is what winter looks like, to me.

Thanks for sharing this brilliant picture.

Erez, truely amazing photography. this shot just leaps off the monitor at me. the composition is sheer perfection the scrub pushing through the snow in the foreground leads you into the frame. the curve of the land leading the eyes around and back into the centre of the view, gliding over the water to the land beyond with the sun painting the sky with its magical pallette. Absolutely superb work one of those shots I can imagine myself in the scene itself. Well done Erez. Simon
