The Giant Awakens

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 21 December 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.


Some call it a troll, others a dragon, in Iceland it is called Hvitserkur and I will call it The Giant. Here it is awakening during my dawn shoot on the eastern shores of Vatnsnes peninsula.

The clouds were moving very fast and what started off as a calm morning quickly became a struggle against strong winds that arrived from the south. I do not think I have ever experienced such powerful sustained winds as on that day.

There were only glimpses of sunrise colours over the horizon but it was still fascinating to be there and to see this rock through my own eyes.

I would like to wish everyone who celebrates this time of the year a Very Merry and Peaceful Christmas!
