Sunset near Lanmannalaugar in Southern Iceland. The pattern in the foreground are potholes filled with water after a nasty shower. Here teh relatively wide angle of my walkaround lens came in handy. Although a wide-angle proper might have worked better, I think this is OK.

Magical scenery. Grand perspective.Beautiful peaceful composition.
Minimalist, simple, full of softness.
Wonderful colours and light.

This is a very special landscape!
I like the view of that particular colors on the backward mountain, its reflection on the water, and that round shapes of water at foreclose.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hiya Mikkel, wonderful clear shot, nice bold composition, really like the subtle colours reflected off the water in the pot holes, great capture!

I love this! Very unique and artistic idea. I love the contrast of textures between the rocks and still water. Beautiful and different :)

I like the sophisticated simplicity of the crop, very effective. A very original view of Lanmannaulaugar, with the repetition of the round water pools, the reflections in the water and the special light of the "blue hour". The variations in the beautiful colours are very subtle yet contrasted, and the overall impression is of great clarity and peacefulness.

I really like the creative approach that your taken on this composition. Many would have not seen this opportunity for a great shot, except perhaps an astute photographer, such as yourself. The scene is also strenghted by the reflection of the top of the mountain in the larger puddle.
Nice work, Mike

I agree it is fine. This rounded shapes remind me to the old sci-fi movies where we landed in foreign planets .... Definitely unique image.

Tremendous natural geometry .. added to this wonderful reflection .. timeless mountain .. I love the way the image moves from dark to bright.

You do have something for good compositions Mikkel! this one is graphically perfect.. almost a contemporary painting compo! I really enjoy the icelandic ride! Thanks

An original take on a otherwise common scene makes this a stand out shot. The clouds balance the polka dot pattern in the foreground. Creative!
