722. Snaefellsnes 12.



This picture has been seen
212 times
722. We spent the night on one of those gravel fields you can find in many places in Iceland. In the morning we woke because our camper was shaking violently, my first thought was: an earthquake. There were some cows using our camper as a rubbing post, they also were licking the windows.

715. Skies over Iceland 1.



This picture has been seen
214 times
715. Iceland is a country of spectacular panoramas. In the foreground two stripes of sunlight, one on the hay bales and one on the farm. Often it's just a matter of waiting for a few minutes to get just the light you want.

710. Snaefellsnes 5.



This picture has been seen
279 times
710. Waterfall, taken with an exposure of 1/3 of a second, the advantage of a VR-lens is that you can still take pictures handheld with very long exposure times. The waterfall was completely in the shadow. On top right en bottom right there is just a little bit of sunshine to be seen.

708. Snaefellsnes 4.



This picture has been seen
217 times
708. A small crater west of Snaefellsjökull. The road is just wide enough for a car, the path on the mountain is only for pedestrians. On the right side an enormous amount of gravel has been dug out in the past. Things like that are probably not allowed any more now.

705. Rust and stones 2.

705. I made a few different compositions. I like this one more than the previous one. Here you have the feeling that the spiral is infinite, there might be more and bigger rocks outside of the frame.

704. Rust and stones 1.



This picture has been seen
229 times
704. It took me quite a while to make this picture.
First I looked for a piece of metal that was positioned in the right way to the incoming sunlight.
Then I looked for stones with a pleasing form and with different sizes.
I arranged the stones in a way to form a spiral and so that the shadows would not touch the other stones.
I wanted to make a balanced composition, the stones, the shadows and the spaces in between had to form a pleasing and balanced composition.

703. Rust 7.

195 times
703. It's fascinating to see that something as strong as steel slowly fails under the influence of salt moving sea water. It just returns to the earth.

701. Rust 5.



This picture has been seen
203 times
701. Because of the shadows this is a somewhat mysterious picture. At first sight it's not quite clear what you see.

700. Rust 4.



This picture has been seen
205 times
700. Not all pieces of scrap are suitable for an interesting picture. It has to have a nice texture, the light has to be right, and it should be possible that a good composition can be made of it.

699. Rust 3.



This picture has been seen

699. Years ago on a small beach on the west coast of Snaefellsnes a ship ran ashore. The parts are scattered all over the beach as a kind of monument. There is even a sign with the request to leave everything as it is. The coming days a number of "rustic" photographs.

************Best wishes for 2007***********

692. You can see moss in a lot of different shades of green. The wetter, the more intense is the colour. Dry moss usually looks kind of grey, but with one drop of water it turns green within seconds. The beautiful blue sky is reflected in the small stream.
