Hi Anes, I guess I can already recognize the place... only the car is gone:)) a pity I can't come to Romania but maybe I come to Iceland some day after seeing all these pictures...
Iva_R (1352) 2007-11-19 1:43
Quel superbe paysage, avec une très belle luminosité et un ciel vraiment époustouflant!
Norte (531) 2007-11-19 1:46
Nice picture with a very special sky!
Good composition, I like the road winding in through the photography. The sky makes the picture, particularly that dark cloud at the left side.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2007-11-19 1:48
The most impressive part of this photo is the dramatic sky. It is not every autumn/winter day we see something like that. It is an excellent art work.
xavis (3180) 2007-11-19 1:50
a great great picture. amazing the atmosphere that you brings. This lights, and this clouds with the snow,...great, and very beautifoul your country.
dragonslayero (3116) 2007-11-19 1:52
This is just a magnificent composition and a really stunning exposure.
The contrast makes the entire landscape stand out in all it's full detailed splendour.
Did you use any filters for this photo?
gary91 (15348) 2007-11-19 1:54
What a stunning picture here ! The composition is great but it is this fantastic sky that makes it all... this looks like silver.
I wish you all the best for your meeting in Romania.
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Christian

GREAT INVITATION SIS!!!
I am coming !!!:):):)
And I am sure we will have a lot of fun and wonderful lanscapes to see :)
smarcell (19963) 2007-11-19 2:01
This picture is fantastic. The color of the sky is so special, and together with the frozen landscape make the whole place unreal.
faubry (35405) 2007-11-19 2:02
buna Anelise, ai mult imaginatie la fell nemessis cred ca nu este tren..te pup, francine
IgorDeleze (585) 2007-11-19 2:03

TE meeting in Iceland ? Ah no it's just an image to show the way up to the (hopefully) snowy mountains, here in the region some skilifs have begun to operate this week end. Again on this image nice road perspective and dramatic light & clouds, I wish you all lots of fun on the coming week end.
filidor (56) 2007-11-19 2:24
!!! It made me completely frozen! The cold almost blown from this shot! Fantastic monochromatic shot! Composition - leading eye follow the road is fantastic. the clouds also make this picture very dynamic. Fantastic work! Regards. Mac
marietom (34607) 2007-11-19 2:30
Une fois de plus, un superbe paysage !
Joli ciel, et belles lignes. Belles couleurs aussi.
C'est magnifique !
bibiweb (8) 2007-11-19 2:33
I do hope that you were not driving when you took this picture! ;o)
It's simply stunning, especially those dark gray clouds in the sky. so dramatic looking! I wish you all the best for your meeting in Romania and deeply regret that I can't be there with you. have fun!
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-11-19 2:34
One more time, the floor and the sky work so well together
Beautifull vision of this wild country
yeti1975 (1270) 2007-11-19 2:42
I thought it was a B/W photo at first. Then I saw the hint of blue in the sky.
Sekhmet73 (4145) 2007-11-19 3:14
Hi Annelise, I've never been to Iceland, but you showed me a very good postcard of this place! So much snow and the moving clouds, all so dramatically mixed. Great!
Truja (4953) 2007-11-19 3:16
of course, a beautiful country!!
Impressive landscape, with force and hardness. Those clouds are really unique.
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-11-19 3:23
you should organize a meeting in Icelan, looking this picture I want to go!
jcdurka1 (1950) 2007-11-19 3:31
Great shot with an amazing sky. I like the contrast of the blue/white ground oposed to the black/white sky.
Very well done,
carper (96) 2007-11-19 3:53
I love it Anellise,
a very nice inventation, the pov is fantastic, I ame a littled bit jealous on you and then I mean as a landscapephotographer. Iceland is a dream for someone like me.
the composition and the atmosphere are great, good qauality, fantastic photojob, with my compliments, have a nice day.
lilimih33 (9912) 2007-11-19 3:55
O alta superba poze din Islanda!
Fantastic cerul, perfect punctul de vedere!
Va doresc sa aveti multa zapada si multe poze frumoase in apropiatul meeting!

Une ambiance du tonnerre!!!
Une image quasi noir-blanc avec des effet de lumière superbe.
Have a nice day
mesutilgim (79988) 2007-11-19 4:42
Hello dear Anellise,
Goodwill ambassador of İceland !
Again a capture with super pov and great light management.
Wonderfull graphical effect adn unbelievable good light management.
TFS and best regards
yanyan (364) 2007-11-19 4:53
tres belle compo
bravo et merci
partha (14020) 2007-11-19 5:24
What a great place. the converging road, tyhe brilliant sky, the overall colour tone all adds nice effect.
Floydian (30970) 2007-11-19 5:54
Light...light, light and light...that's what it all about in photography.
You have created a beautiful example how to control that light and use the light in a really wonderful composition.
Most people have no idea what light does with a photo and all of them should use this one as a study...it's really good..!!!
Next time raise the aperture to a higher number, will help you more with the ultimate sharpness from the foreground to the background.
branley (3681) 2007-11-19 6:29
I have only recently commented on an image from your gallery but I couldn't resist this very moody and magnificent capture, the sky is just superb. It's really first class Anellise, well done.
claudio74 (7263) 2007-11-19 7:28
Very nice picture of this typical winter landscape.
The light is perfectly managed and the sky is very impressive.
regards form the Alps
barrufeto_77 (28876) 2007-11-19 7:52
Another superb shot. That road, that clouds, that...all.....amazing.
The best picture of today...
brandstaetter (15915) 2007-11-19 8:16
not a landscape, a dreamscape ! Excellent silver/white/blue composition... We would also take this road to come to the meeting !
Hugs :D Chris
3 days left....

sabyasachi1212 (19771) 2007-11-19 8:48
This place is absolutely stunning, almost no trace of colour. The monochrome effect works well coupled with the gorgeous landscape.
With Greetings from India
alainh (35579) 2007-11-19 9:15
what a great metalic sky !!
the clouds needs a brushing !!!
i am sure your meeting
should be a great one
have a nice day Anellise
Cormac (26545) 2007-11-19 10:05
This is a fantastic shot! The lighting is really unusual and beautiful. This creates an excellent sense of depth and texture on the ground, while the sky seems almost supernatural. Beautiful and dramatic!
pablominto (53744) 2007-11-19 10:16
This is an amazing image, wonderful light!
The drama of the landscape comes well through, as the varied light adds life...
A well balanced composition, the road is a great lead-in!
gramma (3519) 2007-11-19 10:35
Waouwww ! This image is absolutly incredible. The sky is really impressive, it gives a dramatic atmosphere at this landscape. Perfect colors also. Congratulations !
xavshot (69835) 2007-11-19 11:20
je suis impressionné par les teintes et par la lumière dans cette photo. J'aime beaucoup cette ambiance froide. C'est une très belle photo. Bravo.
Kirych (2703) 2007-11-19 11:51
norman_isaure (4) 2007-11-19 12:54
Quel panorama ! Quelles couleurs ! Quel ciel ! Stupéfiant ! ...
cherryripe (21033) 2007-11-19 13:13
I almost thought this was a b&w photo thanks to the heavy contrasts but then I saw a tinch of blue in the sky. The fantastic depth, the wispy clouds and the mix of light and shadow have made a very dramatic photo.
sebinho342 (19317) 2007-11-19 14:20
First picture i open since long time in your gallery, and you finish in my favorite photographers .... i knew this would happened :)
Excellent one, amazing one, the crisp so sharp low part and the smooth and neated sky is a perfect opposition, cold as a common point.
I love it
paololg (31448) 2007-11-19 14:21
Amazing sky, my dear fried, with a ghostly light and perfect sharpness. A very rarity.
Signal-Womb (13048) 2007-11-19 14:31
Hi Anellise, very stirring image with loads of atmosphere. Sky looks amazing. Very well done..
ak47apache (217) 2007-11-19 14:36
inca o opera de arta....
numai bine, dany
emilbo (22262) 2007-11-19 17:35
Très dramatique cette photo avec ce ciel comme dans les films d'horreur. Trés bel effet de lumière sur la neige, les blancs sont bien rendus. Bonne composition et excellente qualité d'image.
jonathan_hart (21274) 2007-11-20 0:51
another winning perspective leading the eye to the unbelievable sky!
mikeo (12129) 2007-11-20 1:20
What a place!
What a shot!
What a sky!
...even if there is no shops:))))))))
jrj (34841) 2007-11-20 2:37
Another impressive work Annellise. You use the road well to have depth and perspective in the compo. Landscape details under the best light and of course very spectacular cloud formations in the back.
abulafia (4900) 2007-11-20 4:25
Uh, another stunner!
I love your dramatic skies, really impressive that you always manage to take pictures of them, or are they always like this in Iceland?
jemaflor (80658) 2007-11-20 4:54
Great light for this shot, lovely cloudy sky well captured and good effect of depth with this snowy road, well composed ... and good Romanian TE meeting !
danos (83053) 2007-11-20 6:12
I was browsing and came across your fine image taken at the most perfect time of the day. The shape of the clouds are splendid and the light is perfect. I don't think you could better the quality or the sharpness, they are just outstanding. It's a superb capture,with the depth of field to be impressive.Well done Anellise.
Regards from the sunny Athens,Danos
PS nice your dedication to the members of the Romanian TE meeting.
Silvio1953 (115857) 2007-11-20 6:31
Hi Annelise, for me your best photo, wonderful winter composition with splendid perspective and superb light, amazing sky, very well done, ciao Silvio
asival (5299) 2007-11-20 7:13
I think god is sitting in heaven with a big smile on his face while watching your portfolio...
It is just astonishing; the monochromatic drama in your frame is mind blowing
TFS my dear
steliosk (4802) 2007-11-20 8:56
hmm something reminds me this one ;)
2 Points from me too, for the crystal clear atmosphere, and the magic contrast balances you've made, worthy of congratulations. As for the rest of the scene, POV and subject, I don't really have to write a comment, you know its perfect! :)
happy meeting :)
marioana (2256) 2007-11-20 10:13
Wow! Absolutely awesome. Amazing light. Wonderful sharpness and clarity. I guess the air up ther is really clean and clear. That sky is incredible. Very well done.
Best regards, Steve.
mirarer (4751) 2007-11-20 13:02
Otra vez un soberbio paisaje con gran luminosidad y un espléndido cielo.
Morgwathien (596) 2007-11-20 13:04
A great winter image. The sky looks ominious. Splendid details, colours and sharpness. The entire composition is captivating, even if a bit scary ;) Well done, congratulations!
stego (22866) 2007-11-20 15:01
A stunning view. The empty road gives a lot of depth and dynamism and the light and sky are... fantastic!!!
I wish I could join the TE meeting in Romania and also could visit Iceland.
efi (5173) 2007-11-20 22:25
gray and white tones are perfectly coordinated..tfs..
japiey (10163) 2007-11-21 0:29
What should I say?
I havent yet been withdrawn from this magical vision...
Yes.... this is AMAZING...
And a perfect invitation for the MEGA EVENT !!!
My wishes to you , isa, and all.....
Merline (0) 2007-11-21 0:51
I would agree with Silvio that this is your best one, well, in my opinion:-) I like it all!...
But, are you really in Romania ?:op
brevbrev14 (140) 2007-11-21 3:31
HI ANES, woow! wonderful this landscape!!
i love the metallic tones of the image!
great perspective and superb nature!
sayeed_rahman (5987) 2007-11-21 8:10
Aaah..the first one with a thick white frame..was waiting for this a long time..
This place is simply surreal..great cam work..the sky looks so unnatural but its iceland..so i will settle for it
pascal-harbi (1005) 2007-11-22 5:38
The sky and color tones are impressive! Was there any post-processing to get this grey and blue coloration? Excellent framing as well with the perspective on this road! Brilliant!
carlab (2095) 2007-11-22 5:55
simply fantastic! excellent light, amazing sky, good POV... it's perfect!
sagar (2410) 2007-11-22 5:58
God !!What a beauty!!!Mesmerising and breathtakingly beautiful view.
This desereves a place in my fav list!!
dcawker (5717) 2007-11-22 6:26
Wow, really fantastic image here. I love the dream-like quality to it too - especially the clouds! Regards, Doug
donluicu (24718) 2007-11-22 9:37
the image is very nice, the PP is big and visible, but it's still ok..
Dyerco (10185) 2007-11-22 23:05
This a fabulous shot that I am adding to my favourites. The sky has a lot of interest with very strong contrast between blacks and whites. A nice off centre road that curves in such a way that our eyes are drawn in.
Well done Anellise.
snowfalken (1116) 2007-11-23 2:59
Excelente texturile din nori! Imi place si gama redusa de culori si contrastul! Poza are o perspectiva foarte buna! Multumesc!
derek3755 (2341) 2007-11-23 11:40
wow, that one dramatic sky, love it, nice composition, beautiful light, nice one. Just one thing, a higher aperture would give you a bit more depth of field though...
pboehringer (770) 2007-11-23 13:33
WOW .... and darn it. I missed the invitation! Now it is simply to late. The meeting is starting tomorrow and I can't make it from California to Romania in such a short time. Besides that this road doesn't give me felling of safety to get there quickly.
Have a good trip to homecountry (?) and a great meeting. Loking forward to see shots of this meeting at the same stupend level as this here.
inuit66 (663) 2007-11-25 1:53
Fantastic photo with good depth and stunning effect. I would like to have known something about the altering? I like the curves of the road taking one deeper into the motive and the movement of the threathening clouds. Well done. Regards Jens
rigoletto (34197) 2007-11-25 13:20
Depends on my mood...
I mean, when i see those frozen lands, sometimes i want to come, and sometimes i do not. The wilderness attracts me, but i am afraid of freezing my limbs. Anyway, the PP is giving the best result here, to attract our eyes, and the sharpening resulted fine, in order to give the crispiness of the frozen land. Very impressive loneliness, as if the photographer is lonely there, only with her God....
tehanu_f (6896) 2007-11-25 13:35
This is beauty beyond words, Anellise. The contrast between the tranquility of the snowy road and the menacing sky is superb. Thanks for this impressive shot.
Luciano75 (0) 2007-11-26 2:29
The right place for a TE meeting...:D
Amazing sky and composition.
Sa ai o zi faina,
alentejo (1954) 2007-11-26 4:23
This is an amazing view Anes and the light is fabulous. It seems to be another world.
PierreMorel (1172) 2007-11-28 7:17
This one is also very interesting. A good composition and an excellent post processing job to make the sky more dramatic!
You live in a beautiful place and your talent make it like paradise for photographers.
Thanks for sharing this,
AmiBe (6042) 2007-12-08 14:19
Very impressive landscape Anellise !
Iceland is a good name for this country :)
The sky is fantastic.
Corthyll (90) 2007-12-08 14:59
An unbelievable image! The level of detail is amazing in both the landscape and the clouds. The slight colouring in the sky definitely complements the monochromical nature of the image
tmx (1324) 2007-12-17 4:55
Hi Anes, special picture: the light You show us here looks so amazing. combining with the white snow ans ice it creates an unforgetable atmosphere! congratulations. and also the main theme: TE meeting.. nice framing and Pov. greets
Matthew-Watt (6043) 2007-12-26 16:19
I bet you enjoyed taking this photograph! The absence of colour for the most part, aside form a few blue hues means you had to rely on patterns, shapes and textures to convey your message. It is a sublime work of imagery, combining many attractive elements such as the tracks on the road, the softness of the moving cloud cover and the subtleness of the snow. To make a delicious meal you have to proportionally combine the right ingredients for it to work, and here, all the ingredients are in place! Very well done, this photo is a delight.
kiks (11749) 2007-12-28 11:41
Hi Anallise, i'm realy jeaulous of you. I wish i could take a picture like this! Composition, POV and light management are so perfect! TFS
oldsock (575) 2007-12-29 5:56
Beautiful country indeed, like your photograph!
fserajian (2293) 2008-01-07 12:47
Lovely composition, what a capture abd POV, the contrats and the patterns are just out of this world! TFS
ayansadhu (1502) 2008-02-14 7:52
Hi Anes, your profile says that you like colors but this is a wonderful monochromatic color shot...with all the crisp & sharp focus & brightness at its best...
well done & kudos to you for shooting it...
I wish I ere there!!!
ricard (653) 2008-02-20 15:33
I have no words for this fantastic picture.
The sky is absloutely dramatic.
bruce_wayne (1507) 2008-02-26 14:20
great shot!! You made a good and strong atmnosphere...that sky is incredible...very very good shot!
muraks (360) 2008-03-04 2:08

BoisBarb (10369) 2008-03-21 2:40
Quelle ambiance extraordinaire! Le cadrage est excellent et le ciel en toile de fond, incroyable!
SebastianSeng (354) 2008-04-01 19:17
All right...everybody else has said all the words i wanted to say, but nevertheless....truly stunning capture, esp the ominous clouds. They're simply stunning!
marcdemoulin (1870) 2008-04-05 9:58
Amazing sharpness. Great shot!!
Merou (4726) 2008-04-07 13:34
Very pleasant photo. I like the atmosphere and the composition
gmg (4202) 2008-04-10 22:01
Very nice shot with dramatic contrast and good perspective. It gives the sense of the icelandic roads out of summer!
Jean51 (24) 2008-04-21 10:24
Beautiful shot. Compliments.
Dragut (14) 2008-05-04 4:50

Mistral (15402) 2008-05-10 4:50
I missed this stunning image and it was a pity!
You painted with light and... what a masterpiece!
A smile for your weekend!
Silversnow (2319) 2008-05-26 11:43
Great photo of the barren landscapes, the contrast is so sharp it looks like HDR ;)
Cloud__Warrior (347) 2008-05-31 4:56
Wow thats a dramitic picture, so beautiful.
MikiM (1924) 2008-06-23 14:50
Excellent composition with unioques color management. I like its crystal clear felling. Very nice job!
See you in Hungary!
bartolomucci (756) 2008-06-26 23:02
CIAO ANELLISE QUANDO VEDO LE TUE FOTO SONO DELUSO DI NON AVER FATO IL MIO VIAGGIO UN MESO PIU PRESTO IN ISLANDA E COSI TANTO BELLO CON LA NEVE E MISTICO ,FOTO OTTIMA
Yeoman (1153) 2008-08-26 23:28
What a great picture !!! It's just sublime of beauty and emotions... Nothing to say more, except that you are excellent !
NickPavlakis (562) 2008-09-18 7:58
Hi Anelise, this is going to be surely one of my favorites. Crystal clear details although there are some small halos from the sharpness method you used. Strong points the clouds and the white sharp road. Weird atmosphere almost unreal, I would like to see the original to meter the level of processing.
Thanks for sharing
cdmonson (4458) 2008-09-18 22:17
What a fabulous shot! The road leading away and the clarity of the snow-covered landscape are great, but those clouds! They're magnificent! How did you pull that off with such a short exposure? They look like they were exposed for a couple minutes. Great shot.
karanliklar (513) 2008-11-18 7:22
woooww very nice:)
rajhema (1871) 2009-02-11 8:25
dramatic landscape Ane. Iceland is one place I want to visit and still working on it. You may have to change your intro 'I'm not a professional'. Your pictures are extremely beautiful
Khattakphoto (686) 2009-03-08 7:50
Nice picture with a very special sky!
Good composition, I like the road winding in through the photography. The sky makes the picture, particularly that dark cloud at the left side.
mkamionka (29215) 2009-12-21 2:22
Beautiful work here.
I like very much the contrast of the rugged land with the softness of clouds.
It looks very dramatic.
Very well done,
CyrilleGrillere (425) 2010-01-09 1:18
Très belle image !!
Les couleurs, les contrastes, la composition... Tout y est!!
Tabris (140) 2010-02-19 15:16
Wonderful landscap with a beautiful sky. Thanks Anellise.
Yves-triga (5149) 2010-04-25 7:44
que du bonheur de voir cette beauté en image
hemantbuch (1649) 2010-09-29 1:34
You have a beautiful gallery and one of the special pictures is this one...wonderful interplay of light and shade and ominous dark clouds...the raod leads into the frame perfectly...well done!
BrunoCH (2) 2011-03-26 14:01
Really nice composition. The peace is on earth, the storm in the sky! This changes a bit the beliefs. The traitment applied to develop your picture is really mastered and made cristal clear this image . Beautifull!
dodiesis (111) 2011-04-14 16:22
