Midnight in the Highlands

Sunset in an alien world.

This July we had the unforgettable experience of finding ourselves in the middle of the Icelandic Highlands in the middle of the night. At this hour and at this latitude the quality of light coming in at a low angle is unreal. Throw in a bleak, desolate landscape and you might as well be on Tatooine.

    Hello Rajan,
    Great work of art for this Möðrudalsgarður Vestari click. If you may allow me to ask you, did u use a warm or Grad ND filter? How did you cover this dynamic range.

    I am an amateur and still learning photography.

    Best Regards,
