Land of contrasts by XavierJamonet Land of contrasts by XavierJamonet
Another view from my past year trip in Iceland... Here are the Kerlingarfjöll mountains in the center high plains of Iceland.
I was observing an Arctic fox that hunted on the lava fields near the Hveravellir hot spot when, in a few minutes, the light came to the mountains in the background.
I remember my feeling while I admired the landscape, impressed by the contrast of the dark lava clear white peaks, illuminated by sunlight comming from the north...


Hveravellir, Iceland - 21h23

Assembled pano of 7 shoots
