That would be so cool to see in person.The picture is fantastic! If it is that big above the water,how much bigger it must be under the water.Wow!

So, I have to ask! Have you seen the movie "the secret life of Walter Mitty"? There's a scene where he is running or something, and it looks just like that hill and house... just curious, both my daughter and I thought that!!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took the photo in Ferryland, Newfoundland.
Time
It was early afternoon
Lighting
I used natural lighting
Equipment
For that photo I took it with my Sony a58 and my 55 to 300 zoom in lens on my tripod
Inspiration
I heard about the huge iceberg in fairyland that was early for the iceberg season so close to land so I made the trip which is about an hour drive from St John’s , Newfoundland where I live on Easter Sunday last year.
Editing
I may have cleared up the exposure And cropped it a little. I don’t do a lot of editing to my photos.
In my camera bag
They quit been in my bag I always carry my Sony a 58 my 55 to 300 zoom in lens, my wide angle and portrait lens. Extra sd cards , lens cleaner and cloth , a few neutral density filter‘s And Roll of electrical tape
Feedback
This photo was actually internationally published by routers in the UK. The day I went there there was 20 or more other photographers there but when I was asked by routers if they could publish the photo with 3 others they said because I didn’t do much editing and left the people in the photo to show the size differences made the photo better.
