The light and atmospheric conditions in Iceland are unusually beautiful but constantly changing. This picture was made at 10:00am this morning just outside Stykkishòlmur. The clouds hovering over these mountain created depth and a sense of motion in this image. The sun is still very low in the sky this time of year and when its out, makes wonderful lighting for landscape photography. But sometimes it doesn't stay out for long. What looked like a great day at 10:00am today, had turned into a howling gale by noon, with winds so strong I thought it would blow my car off the road. As I write this it is gray, dull and still windy. There is a saying here..."if you don't like the weather just wait 5 minutes." There is a lot of truth in that!
