Vik's Spirit
« 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.



Thank you for viewing, best regards

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

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! :)

I'll bet he bundles up.

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 ;)
