Quite possibly the most epic canyon in Iceland. Here a wider shot from the spot I posted the other day. This secret canyon is one of the few places left not overrun by tourism. I was guided here by a local and sworn to secrecy regarding location 🤐🤫

This may be one of my favorite compositions I've ever created. We were driving back from a day of climbing during a spring trip to Joshua Tree, looking for anywhere to pee and cook a hot meal over a grill (we reheated some lasagna from the night before, burnt most of it, I think). It was just before sunset and pretty chilly with the wind despite the warmth of the sun soaked rocks. .
I went exploring, trying to find a good spot for some long exposure experiments. I wanted to play with light painting, trails, astro shots and my second curtain flash. Right on the other side of our grill was this cool rock formation with lots of brush. The stars were rising and the balance of the tree, the horizon and the sliver of moon caught my eye. .
This composition strikes the golden ratio perfectly 👌
It's my most awarded image, my highest selling print and a personal favorite for many of my own reasons: it's taken on a climbing trip--and I love those trips--in one of the most strange and serene landscapes I've ever been to, with a simply magical flair. It looks how Joshua Tree feels.
Illuminated at night, the church of San Giorgio Maggiore, can be seen from the square of San Marcus, on the other side of the canal, is like looking at a real magical senario.
