Absolutely so love the textures, colours and contrast in this image.

Behind The Lens

Location
This is a view on a famous Vesurhorn mountain in East Iceland. Also known as Stokkness, next to the Viking Cafe.
Time
Right smack in the middle of the afternoon.
Lighting
The lightting is slightly diffused direct light from the sun.
Equipment
Shot with my Canon EOS 6D, Benro flimsy tripod, somewhere around 45mm.
Inspiration
Everyone takes superwide angle views of this place, so the dunes appear to be tiny. I tried a different approach and zoomed in a bit to show their actual size.
Editing
I used colour effects pro 4 to add contrast and a bit of details to the mountains.
In my camera bag
Back then I was shooting with Canon gear + Tamron/Sigma/Canon lenses, these days I am more of Fuji girl.
Feedback
Open your heart and don't go for the iconic shot. There are so many opportunities in this location... a lifetime is not enough to capture them all.
