Darker Harmony

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 9 April 2016 in Landscape & Rural.


The dark beauty of Reynisfjara, the black beach, and Reynisdrangar, the sea stacks near the town of Vik in Iceland. The long exposure had a rather soothing effect on the rough and dangerous seas around this spot. The waves and swell were huge and nothing like I have ever seen before.

I like the enchanting effect of this scene though. It has a certain calmness about it and I think that I achieved a reasonable balance between the sea stacks in the distance and the solitary stack in the foreground. The clouds added just enough movement and interest in the sky.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 180 second F/18.0 ISO 50 35 mm
