I love the contrast between the red sweatshirt and the water. This photograph truly captures how small we are in comparison to the magnificence of nature. It also reminds me of older paintings of sublime landscapes. Incredible composition, color palette, and dedication!

Yes, this is indeed a fabulous shot! I would never have thought to use my Canon 100mm Macro L Series Lens to achieve this kind of shot! Amazing! Have you used a 100mm before for a landscape of this sort?
It certainly achieved a different perspective that I have seen before.
Great capture!
shutterchemistry August 17, 2016
Thank you for your kind words!
shutterchemistry August 17, 2016
I have used the macro lens for few occasions. Actually I also love the results I get with my Macro Lens. Another one of such example is the panorama on my Profile.

Yacoub October 14, 2016
I love the composition and the contrast between the character standing centre and the background. What were you thinking when you took this shot? Is this guy trying to hold conversation with the other him(Soul /Spirit) or just overwhelmed with the wonders of nature. What's your story? Effective use of centre as against the rule of third. Great work

*** Stand Up N Get Counted ***

Sometimes the Worst Weather Makes The best Shot.

If you like my work, you can follow me on Instagram @shutterchemistry

Recipe Behind the Shot:

Three hours of wait for downpour to stop.
No telephoto lens to compress distance.
(Shot with Canon 100 mm Macro)
4 degree outside temperature.
Constant Spray of ice cold water.
A patient wife, agreeing to wait while I kept perfecting the composition.

Benefit of Worst Weather:

Less or almost no crowd, at one of the most popular place in Iceland.
Moody Atmosphere.

Lesson Learnt by Me:
No weather is bad weather.
Learn to Adapt and move on. :)
