This view at the corner of Laugavegur and Klapparstígur in Reykjavík doesn't exist anymore...the building that the red frame supports has gone up, and will probably be fully completed by summer. Glad I got this shot!

A pretty scene at the edge of Heiðmörk Nature Reserve, just outside of Reykjavik (our local IKEA can just been seen on the distant horizon: )

Gorgeous! It does look like a drinking animal, as one G+er, +Pierre Haimerl, put it : )
In the photographer's own words.............

The Sunrise Observer.

From my trip to the north two weeks ago. I stopped at this place called Hvítserkur. Its an old injection of magma into a underground fissure. Over a long period of time the fissure came up to the surface and the ocean cleaned away all the soft rock around the magma injection forming the unique structure. These things can been seen in quite a few places around Iceland.

After 4 hours of driving I arrived at this place just before sunrise. I managed to set up my gear and take a few test shots before the sun come over the horizont.

I stayed there for two hours shooting while the sun slowly traveled horizontally along the horizont before climbing steeper up into the sky.

Unfortunately it was high tide. On low tide the shallow water receds beyond the horse like stone formation leaving behind beautiful waves in the sand and small ponds of seawater ideal for reflections. I will definitely have to revisit this place when the tide is low.
