The quality of light cast by the low sun in Iceland is very special. These images were taken during sunset near the iconic mountain Dyrfjöll in the northeast.

Canon EOS 5DS.

The new Canon EOS 5DS has arrived. At 50 megapixels, it is the highest resolution digital SLR as of today.

I fired off a few frames this afternoon and took them through my usual workflow.

Amid the volcanic surrounds of Krafla in northern Iceland is the incongruous scene of a borehole capped with a shower head. My friend Kristinn Ingi Pétursson was tempted to put his physical limits to the test in the near zero degree conditions. It took him well over an hour to feel whole again after the ablution.
