Behind The Lens

The photo of the Vesturhorn moutain was taken there (Stokksnes - South East Iceland).
It was made at 11:41 on October, 12th - 2015.
Just tried to catch de natural beauty of the place with no other special goals.
Shot on a Canon EOS 5d Mark II, with a Samyang 14mm f/2.8, @ ISO 50, f/11, 1/60"; Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod legs w/ 498RC2 head.
The Vesturhorn itself. It's often called "Batman Mountain," is a beautiful mountain (454 m/1450 ft high) where very steep cliffs meet a flat, black sand beach. People goes there to photograph the dramatic landscape, or just sit and enjoy the vast beauty. Just as I did.
Nothing special apart the usual RAW development adjustments.
In my camera bag
Usually I carry a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a 7D bodies with Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS, EF 24-70 f/2.8L, EF 70-200 f/4L IS, EF 24-105 f/4L IS objectives. For this trip to Iceland (needed to travel light) i just carried The 5D Mk II body with Canon EF 24-105 and the Samyang 14mm lenses.
Don't hurry, take your time. This spot (like almost any other in Iceland) is always changing, providing a great ambience variety, so you can make very diferent pictures of this beautiful place just by spending some time there.
