Stora-Graenafjall by Alex37 Stora-Graenafjall by Alex37
The beginnings of a day of sunshine and showers on day 3 of the Laugavegurinn from Alftavatn to Emstrur in Iceland.

I was washing dishes when the sun came out for the first time that morning and I dashed back to the tent. My girlfriend had already realised that I would be running back and held my camera and tripod out of the tent ready for me to dash past set up the composition and shoot the image.

Stunning Alex. Of course I would had gone for a super long exposure to cut the ripples on the water but that's just me. Bit windy was it?

Yeah but nothing like the night before. I'm taking the higher ground on this long exposure nonsense!

I think it is fabulous, love the sort of iridescent effect on the mountain...dishes can always wait, that's why they invented paper plates

Yeah, but paper plates dont come on 4 day hikes without resupply :P

Hey, maybe you should have let her wash the dishes instead (I can just feel my wife smacking me on the head for saying this :-)) The light is lovely but the layering of the image does not flow, it is kind of broken in half by the lake at the base of the mountain and the fact that we cannot see the stream as it empties into the lake. I know, in situations like this we take what we can.
