Lovely, particularly the colours.

I took the liberty of opening it in PS & cropping off the top part of the image ( the distant view just above the ridge ). I like the cropped version but I can see why you would want to include the wider view of the landscape - it sets the crater in context as part of a landscape, cropped it starts to become an abstract.

Wonderful. I see it was taken from an airplane, well done.

Really nice strong image with the fantastic colour of the water.  Aerial shots of Iceland have so much impact.

That is an eye catcher of an image. The color of the lake contrasted with the landscape makes it.

Thank you, all.

Graeme: I did consider it, but preferred to keep this version.
