One more point of view on the beautiful Hverfjall crater in the Mývatn lake area in the north of Iceland. And one more rainbow ! Yes, it was a rainbow festival that evening ! From this point of view you can see very well the beautiful outline of the crater. I find it looks like a stadium. It also looks like the craters there is on the Moon. Actually the Hverfjall crater was used by US astronauts of Apollo program as a training camp before they walked on the Moon in 1969.

i love the light illuminating this scene, and of course the rainbow adds that special touch. excellent, well saturated colours, especially in the blue tones of the sky.

Your photograph certainly shows a very alien landscape but, it is no less interesting because of that! What a contrast of surfaces we can see! Your viewpoint creates a diagonal approach across the frame to the colourful focal rainbow.
My warm regards,
Iceland certainly appears a very attractive place to visit, especially for a photographer!

De toute ta série sur cet endroit, celle-ci est sans conteste ma préférée. La lumière y est idéale et on n'y trouve que la nature (ni photographe, ni route).
