Behind The Lens

Location
This foto was taken during our first trip to Iceland in location called Gjain. It's placed near Haifoss waterfall and requires using decent car to drive here, but it is worth it!
Time
In summer in Iceland you probably would like to stay awake during the night and sleep in day time - less people travelling with organised groups, beautiful long sunset turning into sunrise... This photo was taken near sunset time 23:15.
Lighting
Even the sky was covered with low clouds, sunset sun managed to bring some colours to the sky near skyline, on moss and water. One more cons to shoot at summer night.
Equipment
Shot was taken with Canon 6D, Samyang 14mm F2.8 and Benroe tripod.
Inspiration
An unusual landscape for Iceland - you're always expecting huge waterfalls, rocks, icebergs, mountains and black sand. But in Gjain you see the oasis in rocky deser filled with small trees, plants and flowers, moss, small caves and creek.
Editing
This foto merged from two shots - one for sky, one for foreground. Merging was made in Lightroom. Small adjustment also were made in Lightroom, like increase contrast and vibrance to reflect surface of rocky structures and colour of water.
In my camera bag
I don't have many things in my back for landscape photography - Canon 6D, Tamron 24-70, Canon 16-35, Benroe tripod and set of filters, sometimes add Tamron 100-400 in case of searching for details or distance shots.
Feedback
Try to explore pathes that lay away from usual tourist ways and arrive there in time without crowds and good lightning if it's possible. Don't forget to use online maps to find interesting spots that don't draw much attention yet.
