This panoramic shot was taken at the top of the same crater, like on yesterday's post, this is the view on the other side. No built village, just scattered farm houses are present there.

Hi Kristof,
Wow this is an awesome view! Excellent captured, you light management is perfect here. The red roofs stand out very well. A great panoramic view of the Icelandic landscape.

HI Kristof,

Terrific scenery and panoramic outlook photographed. The houses looks tiny giving a true sense of scale. GReat work! Tfs.


Hi Kristof,
Fantastic panoramic view! Very nicely composed, the large mountains really put the houses below into perspective. The clouds add quite a dramatic effect over the photo. Excellent colours too. Are those sheep I see in the far distance? Great work.

Hello Kristof,
Lovely scenery with soft subdued lighting.
The panoramic format suites well with your capture.
A dramstic sky and a magnificent mountainscape.
The lovely placed farm houses are giving impact to the presentation.
Well done,

The volcanic cinder cone at left, looks very menacing, as it towers over the tiny dwellings at right, which add scale. Tfs!

Looks peaceful enough to see the farm houses but somewhat scary to see this crater towering above wondering if someday it may wake up.
Great panoramic shot.

Hi Kristof
one more great posting from Iceland.
you managed to capture in a perfect way those fascinating landscapes, with the addition of dramatic clouds. Spectacular panorama.
excellent pov and dof.
wonderful layers, well composed.

Hello Kristof,

Very nice scenery of a country I plan to visit in the future :) I like the smallness of the houses against that huge, barren mountainscape. Well captured with the clouds draped in layers.

Ciao Kristof

Ah .. this landscape comes into my mind a place
the mountains to the bottom reminds me
of the Andes and your peaks.
Without doubt, it is an excellent landscape and houses
added to this place as an enchanted valley.
Great visual!
