In my opinion, these are the colors of the summer in Iceland: white of the, green of the grass, ochre of the land and dark gray of the lava plus - when it's sunny - the blue of the sky!
Here you can see in background the Myrdalsjökull glacier, viewed from the hill of Hraungerdi, where once was a farm the survived the big eruptions of the Katla volcano (just below the ice of the Myrdalsjökull!)

Very good composition with the 2 diagonals on it creating a triangel that push the eye into de BG. Excelent!

Beautiful landscape. I like these clouds covering mountains. Beautiful colours of grass contrasting with perfectly blue sky. Great depth of fields and especially composition with slopes framing the whole picture.

conosco bene questi colori e questi paesaggi, in Islanda ci ho lasciato un pezzo di cuore e foto come questa mi aiutano a lenire la nostalgia.
Impressionante, anche se visto da lontano, il ghiacciaio là in fondo.
