Image was taken while heading back from Breiđavík in the West Fjords on the coast road Barđastrandarvegur.
We were heading for the Ferry Baldur which crosses Breidafjörđur Bay from Brjánslćkur to Stykkishólmur on the Snćfellsnes peninsula.
Image taken from about 65° 31.110', -23° 23.335' looking approximately South East along the road.
I liked the effect of the rain obscuring the mountain.
When I inspected after posting, I realised that some over-sharpening was evident.

The murky atmosphere creates an air of mystery; one wonders what might come forth from the mist. I like the composition with the road coming in bottom left and snaking its way across the frame towards the houses huddled under the mountain. Also, the low light and soft muted colours.

encore un trčs beau paysage d'Islande.
J'aime bien ce genre de vue, avec la brume, la végétation et la route qui trace une ligne.

Empty road even during summer time, this is how look Iceland most of the year.
Nice panoramic shot of road with mountains in small distance covered in fog.
Good quality photo as well colors, light and sharpness.

A lovely uninhabited landscape. The hill in the distance looks mysterious coming out of the mist.
I have read in the books that Iceland is a sparsely populated country and your photos document that fact very well. Very well presented in real and natural colors. Well manged light in what looks like difficult condition.
Nice shot and thanks for sharing.

I like this one too, specially for the place and the weather conditions themselves, but also for the slim horizontal format, management of difficult light, colors and composition!
TFS - congrats,
