Only In Dreams

In June, lupine blanket the entire country of Iceland. We were lucky enough to visit the town of Húsavik on our journey around the Ring Road. This was one of the nicer small towns we stayed at—a great place for whale watching and good home base for visiting the major attractions north Iceland has to offer.

This photo was made at around 2:00am at the Kaldbaks-kot Cottages just outside of town. There was a sea of lupine here and although I was exhausted and the sunrise glow was pretty dim I had to shoot it.

This is another composition of this location that I finally got around to processing. I think I like this angle better as the lupine get larger and larger in the frame. I also stack-focused this one and then blended the 4 shots by hand. I like how the warmer light hits the tops of the flowers and then gradually becomes moves into the cooler purple tones as you go towards the frame. Kept the light focused on the house but tried to keep all the detail in the flowers up close to me as well.

Check out my drone video I shot in Iceland here:
