Wonderful!

Kirkjufell, Iceland

My shot at the highly photographed Kirkjufell.
I know this place has been photographed so much, but I still wanted to have shot it myself :-)

My shot at the highly photographed Kirkjufell.

One thing I did realize is how hard this place is to shoot because of the strong winds here. Really happy I have my shot, but I do think it was the least fun spot to shoot in Iceland because of the wind :-)

It's a manual blend of two exposures (one more for the sky and one for the foreground). But the dynamic range of my little fuji's would be able to handle one shot if necessary!
Most adjustments were made in Lightroom. Manual blend, contrast adjustments in Photoshop and finished with some small color enhancements in Nik Color Efex Pro 4.

Hope you like it :-)
