Kirkjufell At Dawn

After staying in for an hour or two at breakfast, we decided to venture out into the rain in hopes of some clearing. Luck was again on our side and we had only a very slight drizzle once we arrived at our location. With everyone prepared for the weather and high tide on our side, we hit the bay next to Kirkjufell for some reflection work. This area has been very productive for me in the past and the clouds really added to the morning shoot affording me a different look than my previous images. I love going where other people seldom go (everyone and their brother was across the street trying to shoot the waterfalls at high tide.....how funny).

While at the site, we discussed focus stacking and the use of anchor points to make the image stronger. Big thanks to Jim for spotting the perfect rock. Everyone left with smiles on their faces and just a little bit on the damp side.

“Chruch Mountain” in English, is located on the north coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, near the town of Grundarfjörður.  Rising 463 meters above sea level, Kirkjufell is one of the most icon images of Iceland.  As such, it is often covered with photographers and sightseers looking for that special image.  GPS Latitude: 64.927361 GPS Longitude: -23.307352
