It was one of those days, great for landscape photography as rain clouds raced across the sky leaving gaps for shafts of sunlight in between. I'd been watching the play of light of the mountainside as I drove but wanted a subject to make a photo. It was then I saw the church. I pulled off the highway, set up my tripod and waited. Finally, the church and the mountainside were bathed in that gorgeous soft late autumn light. It was just a moment but I was ready with the shutter release.

Absolutely fantastic image and lighting. Personally I think losing some of the upper sky by cropping to a 16:10 or 16:9 aspect ratio, with horizontal rule of thirds would take it into the absolute masterpiece category. Try it and you'll see :)

Love your pictures of Iceland. Spent a year there in 1966 serving in the US Navy. My job enabled me to travel through much of this beautiful country. Your photos do it justice.
