"Ice Capades"






>Click here for large version<

Early this year I was travelling in Iceland, scouting for locations for a new photo tour. I was prepared to see a lot of spectacular landscapes, people had even warned me that I would get hooked, but it still greatly exceeded my expectations. As a result I didn't cover a lot of distance each day - too much to see and photograph! And as a result of that, I stayed much longer than anticipated - which was not too bad by the way

This was taken at sunrise. I had set my alarm clock very early to check out the weather, and it didn't look very promising - completely overcast. The weather in Iceland changes quickly though, so I decided to give it a try anyway. When I arrived at the beach the clouds already started to move away and the sky opened up a little. Enough for some light and color to come through. Moments like this can disappear quickly, so I had to move fast. I shot three exposures to capture all the brightness levels and later merged them in PS.

This is a truly exceptional capture, one of the best I have seen in a long time. I was in Iceland several years ago, and it is about the most "target rich" country for a photographer I have encountered. I found the place particularly conducive for wa photography.

Hello Marsel,
I really like this. The large chunk of ice in the foreground really helps make this photograph.

Beautiful image Marsel - I keep staring at it seeing more detail and thinking about how you did it.

The sparkle of the ice is fabulous.

I have seldom seen so many challenges in a single scene. Huge DOF from inches to infinity, huge dynamic range, which requires bracketing. But there are two kinds of moving water, which complicates the business of combining the bracketed shots. Plus determining the optimal amount of motion blur in the water. Absolutely fantastic.

Regards, Antero

Lovely image Marcel. That chunk of ice in the foreground seems as though it is suspended in front of the camera....Scotty.

Marsel,
Extraordinary image...
Would you explain what is the dark area beneath the large piece of ice
in the foreground? I just can't quite put it all together.
