Shades of Grey

I have been unable to post too much recently with renovation works progressing at home, however, they are slowly coming to completion so hopefully I will be able to have time for photography soon.

For the time being I am posting final few images from this year's trip to Iceland. This photo comes from our drive to the Reykjanes Peninsula in strong winds, gloomy clouds and rain. We decided to stop at Krýsuvíkurbjarg Cliffs along the way just in case there was a chance of spotting a puffin or two. Indeed there were plenty of them around but they were all frolicking about near the water and unfortunately did not quite come up to the top of the cliffs.

Still the area has some great coastal scenery and this little spot was the highlight. I liked the seeping curve of the cliffs leading into the distance with the white wash of the waves highlighting the bottom edge beautifully. The clouds lifted just enough in the background to reveal a misty line of hills over the cliffs to add just a touch of extra depth in the scene. As I was taking the long exposure I was praying that the rain stays away for the entire duration and luckily it did.

This was an unexpected but a great find, which goes to show that it pays off to visit new and lesser knows locations. Mind you, I am yet to find a spot in Iceland that does not offer something of interest to a photographer.
