Myvatn Sunset Pano

Lake Myvatn Sunrise Pano, Iceland.

Myvatn Sunset Pano

 

About a week ago, I posted a single image from the sunrise at Lake Myvatn, Iceland. Here’s the full panoramic version of that same sunrise that evening. This photograph is a 4-image panoramic stitch of probably the most beautiful night during my 10-day stay in Iceland.

I realized that I’ve never advertised that I’m on Instagram yet! For all you Instagram users out there, you can follow me at nathan_bush_photography.

Sunrise Fire in Ice

Fire and Ice– Iceland

Sunrise Fire in Ice

 

Here, a chunk of ice from an iceberg at the Jökusárlón Glacier Lagoon near Skaftafell National Park in Iceland rests on the beach, washed ashore by the ocean surf. As the sun rises, the fire-like light reflects beautifully through the clear, pure ice.

This photograph was fun to make. After setting my tripod at the lowest setting and realizing that it still wasn’t low enough, I actually dug the tripod legs into the sand a bit to lower it even more. Then, laying on the ground on my stomach, I watched and waited for the sun to rise just enough to shine straight through the tiny hole in the ice. It was still rather dark at this time, so this photograph is a blend of three exposures: one for the foreground, one for the sky, and the other to combine the foreground and the sun in the ice, essentially creating an HDR.

If you enjoy this photograph, please feel free to share it with your friends!

 

 

Iceberg Sunrise Jökulsárlón Lagoon

Jökusárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland.

Iceberg Sunrise Jökulsárlón Lagoon

 

The ice at Jökusárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland, is incredible in that it slowly breaks off of the icebergs in the lagoon and flows out to sea. Once out to sea, the chunks of glacial ice wash ashore and come to rest in the sands of the black sand beach.

Here, a chunk of glacier ice and sea water reflect sunrise light as the sun rises off the horizon.

Myvatn Sunset Iceland

Iceland Sunset– Lake Myvatn

Myvatn Sunset Iceland

 

One of the more stunning sunsets I have ever witnessed in person. All of the elements aligned just right for a perfect sunset over Lake Myvatn in Northern Iceland just the other night.

Last time I came to Iceland, I stayed in Reykjavik for a 5 days and barely left the city. Boy did I miss out. I absolutely love Iceland. The natural country outside of the city is absolutely stunning! This place is a must-visit for any adventurous traveling soul.

Enchanted Forest

Fog in the Forest

Enchanted Forest

“Enchanted Forest”

 

Have you ever taken a photograph that you deliberately knew was going to be a black and white photograph before you even clicked the shutter release on your camera? If you don’t regularly shoot in black and white, then the odds aren’t high, but that’s how “Enchanted Forest” was for me. During my previous trip to Alaska a couple of weeks ago, I knew that at some point I wanted to get a shot of the early morning fog rising out of the forest trees– and I knew I wanted it to be a black and white shot. Each day I searched for the photograph that I knew I was looking for, but the fog and tree combination just never seemed right. Then, while on a boat trip to Tracy Arm Fjord, I looked up into the mountains and saw the scene in this photograph, instantly knowing that it was the photographic opportunity that I had been waiting for.

 

This photograph was taken at 400mm with the 100-400 set at f/8 and ISO 640 due to the dark cloud cover that morning.

 

So do you have any photographs that you instantly knew were going to be black and white images? If so, post a link to your image in the comments. I’d love to check them out :)
