Title: Vik's Spirit
Post by: Vieri Bottazzini on January 03, 2020, 05:36:17 pm
Nothing beats the stark beauty of Iceland in winter, and the expressive power of long exposures definitely helps in creating a special mood. Vik's Spirit, 323 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 45mm and Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest Ultra filters.

Vieri,
This foto is archetypal.
Congratulations.
But I must ask you, how do you survive out there ?

I'll bet he bundles up.

This is very fine, Vieri.

Really fantastic. I like how physically small the stacks are in the frame but their "presence" is huge!
Well seen.

Truly excellent! I was there a couple of years ago, but at the height of summer. It was very different!!

Thank you very much indeed Richard, much appreciated! :)

This is very fine, Vieri.

Thank you very much Eric, glad you enjoyed it! :)

About the survival part, well, thankfully cold weather clothing technology went a long way... nowadays it's pretty easy to stay warm without having to bundle up top much and without having to carry a lot of weight on you as well ;)
