Enchantment in the Subarctic

An evening to remember.

The iconic table mountain Sellandafjall in north Iceland is a personal favourite of mine. My friend Kristinn Ingi Péturson and I spent a blissful autumn evening two years ago on the banks of Sandvatn, captivated by the play of light on the mountain.

Our location made possible the following unusual composition of two great icons together in one frame: Herðubreið, Queen of the Icelandic mountains, at least 50 Kms away, and the graceful arc of Sellandafjall.

Earlier in the evening, we enjoyed a fluid tableau of beautiful reflections.
