Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Arnarstapi Iceland on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula
Time
I had stopped in Arnarstapi on the way back from Kirkjufelll mountain. It was around noon and I wasn't expecting much in the way of lighting. I was lucky that there was a storm rolling through and actually made for some great mid day light.
Lighting
Iceland has storms rolling in and out on a consistent basis. I was very happy that in the 7 days I was there I had only seen one day of rain and this minor weather front, the rest of the time it was sunny and fairly warm by iceland standards. The storm rolling through gave me some great light for it being mid day and let me capture this without washing out the color too much.
Equipment
My 5d markII had died on me in a rainstorm the previous week in Ireland. I had rented a Canon T5I as a back up just in case and thank goodness i did. I used a polarizer for the reflection on the water and a tripod.
Inspiration
I had seen a few shots of this spot online and did a small bit of research to find it. The photos i had seen were beautiful with snow on the mountain to the right in this shot and were taken at either sunrise or sunset. I really loved the feel of those photos and the mountain towering above the house so i made it a stop on the trip.
Editing
This is one shot, no focus stacking or manual blending on this one. Of all my photos this one was probably the quickest in photoshop. Did some contrasting, brought out the reflections a bit, added orton effect and sharpened.
In my camera bag
Right now i am switching over to nikon so I am using a d810 and 16-35. Before i was using 5d mark II, 17-40 or whatever lens i had rented for a trip. I always have a tripod, polarizer and some nd filters.
Feedback
I would say plan well, not sure if you can get here in the dead of winter. Go anytime of day. Spend time enjoying the scenery and have fun in Iceland!!!
