Heydalur, Iceland
Heydalur, Iceland

Spring has finally started over here. The weather is good, flowers start to bloom and insects appear. Unfortunately I’m quite busy teaching at the moment, so I don’t have much time to enjoy the weather, let alone take pictures. Hopefully that will come this weekend when I have to give a workshop in the Fochteloerveen again.

Until then one more picture I took in Iceland. Next to our cottage there was a small stream. Nice to practice with some filters. In this picture I used the Lee big stopper (a 10-stops neutral density filter) to get a long exposure and a 2 stops graduated neutral density filter to darken the sky a little. I do like the result, I hope you do too!
