They are all so different from anything else we see here and so good photographs Torgny!! If I had to pick out favorites, it had to be # 10 and # twelvelidelv!

:^)

Have a nice week-end, Torgny!


BTW: Any signe of the ash-trail from the volcano-erruption on Iceland, yet? We had quite a spectacular sunset yesternight with the ash-trail sweeping across our evening-sky and Alasdair and I shot some seldom landscapes!

Thank you, Walter,


Hope you had a nice weekend too.


On the pictures. There are two stereotypes

1 the milky water (for example in waterfalls and streams)

2 the silky water (for example in coastal pictures)


Mostly you use tripods to get long exposure times (making a virtue out of necessity perhaps ;-)


Well, personally I am utterly tired of those strereotypes. The eyes never see water that way and they come in millions. So I just want to do counterweights in approaching water. Camera set, like today for instance, preferably at 1/8000 of a second to "stop" or to "freeze" water

Today's cameras can make it. The problem is that you also need a small aperture. So. I have some ideas how to make it better


On the Eyjafjallajökull under ice rift vulcano. It's hard to know what's pollution from the city and what is ash from the vulcano. I think there are particles from the outbreak but I can't prove it

Been in Iceland three times. Once I was at a lesser outbreak at Gjástykki in the northern parts, not far from Akureyri, direction Herdubreidarlindir. I stood one meter from the rift; very hot overall; especially the feet. Quite spectacular. I got there driving through the old lava field in a two wheel rear drive Datsun. Still wonder how it was possible without damaging the car

4 wheel drive jeeps are best. I have many lesser adventures from Iceland to "raconter" as they say in France, but... Iceland is highly recommended for photographers who want/need hefty motives. Normally the air is clean as nowhere else and in bright sunlight you can see tenths of kilometers

The landscape is enormous.

The river has many faces. Stumbled upon this stillwater picture, and tried some postprocessing
