I wouldn’t have been out making images if not for Börkur Hrólfsson who expertly negotiated the hazardous conditions (see video below).

    What the…!!! Most of us would have been out in such a weather only and only in a life and death situation…and probably that is the reason why most of us do not make photographs like you. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Premanand-bab, it was my friend Börkur whose skill in driving in these hazardous conditions allowed me to be out shooting. Knowledge of where to stop/park and orient the car (into the wind and away from incoming) is crucial, none of which I could have managed on my own.ReplyCancel
