Day 4 & 5 of the Luminous-Landscape Winter Iceland workshop. Weather changed a bit as to be expected. Extremely high winds came in and that made photography challenging. We haven’t had real good light for sunrises or sunsets the past few morning but we are out there anyway. With the kind of lighting we were challenged with went withB&W for a number of today’s photos. We are here until next Thursday and have waterfalls on today’s agenda. More coming. A number of clients on this trip have been with me before on workshops. Always good to see and photograph with friends.
This was a fun shot to do. We were in Iceland and it was windy and cold. We visited this location where the surf was just exploding on very rough rocks. The sun was breaking through the clouds and adding nice color. I dragged the shutter a bit to emphasize the breaking surf. While were there one photographer got a bit too cocky and got close to the edge. A big wave came up and knocked him and his tripod over and almost washed him out with the wave. I see this kind of thing a lot in Iceland. Everything from weather to waves is unpredictable in Iceland. Word to the wise, be careful.
