Glorious Morning in Iceland

We were on the road at 4am this morning and saw the sunrising in the sky turning the clouds into beautiful colors, however we hadn't yet arrived at our destination. So we changed our plans and stopped literally right in the middle of the road (no traffic at 4am in Iceland!) and took this incredible reflection in a puddle.
This image was only sharpened in Filterstorm, no other processing necessary. I also am including at the end of this blog a screen shot to show that yes a stitched image from an iPhone is a large size 16mp to be exact. Is it printable? - you bet it is, just as many iPhone images are.

Our day continued to a wonderful lagoon full of icebergs. Some were grounded, some broke apart and floated away right in front of us. I just sat there and watched the amazement of Mother Nature changing the earth right in front of me. Our final stop this morning was at the black sand beach just across the road from the lagoon. This is where the ocean waves once again grounded many of the icebergs that were floating by us. The beach was literally litered  with them.
The above photo is my Icelandic iPhoneography (and big boy camera photography) partners, Harry Sandler and Michael Pressman. It has been a pleasure to travel with them this week. We have shared jokes and created very memorable stories!

This image was captured from the car window because it was raining too hard outside. The fog was low and you couldn't see any of the spectacular mountains or glaciers on the trip to our hotel that day. These buildings are referred to as 'out houses', however they are used to shelter the sheep in the winter time. These particular ones were no longer in use. We were amazed at how they were built right into the rock!

This image was processed with Artista Haiku, Blender and Filterstorm.

The screen print shows the size of the top stitched image. It was stitched with the app AutoStitch on the iPhone.

  1. come from the land of the ice and snow
    from the midnite sun where the hot springs blow
    How soft your fields, so green
    can whisper tales of gore, of how we calmed, the tides of war
    We are your overlords
    On we sweep with,
    with threshing oar
    Our only goal will be the western shore
    so now you better stop and rebuild all your ruins
    for peace and trust can win the day despite of all you're losing
    (Led Zeppelin)
