"her majesty"| in all of her grandeur there she was, her majesty kirkjufell mountain, posing elegantly and creating endless awe in all her admirers. i trembled before such an incredible vision and, after bowing in humble reverence, tried to capture her the best i could.
this is one of the photos made during the morning of the second day in iceland, in my september 2014 trip. after having the honor of witnessing a fantastic northern lights display during the previous night, i still had to spend some more time in this incredible place during the morning, before heading to hvitserkur. the weather was densely overcast, so it was a good opportunity for very long exposures and playing with shapes and reflections.
