One shot Challenge │ Iceland Landscape Photography

Documenting Iceland

by: Rafn Sig,-


Well! One more time it’s a dull weather condition in Iceland for photographing.
Hmmmmm. . . . . I need to do something about it as I’m bored at home?

OK – I know what I will do. . . . . . . . I will challenge myself.

I will take one camera (Canon EOS 5D MK IV), one lens (Canon EF 16-35mm f/2,8 II USM), my Kase Filters ND64 (1,8)- Polarizing filter, Soft edge Graduated Neutral Density Filters 0,6 (2 stops), tripod and tablet to control it all.

With this gear I will only take ONE PHOTO

I went into my car and I had not a clue where I would go. I decided to let my car control that. Suddenly I was at this place – The TROLL bath “Brimketill”. 

Hmmmmmm – OK –
I went out to the edge, looked around and found myself a good spot where I could sit down and think about how I was going to do this, I have only one chance.
I laughed at myself and I was afraid to take the shot. “Common you old fool, this is just fun” and I heard “click”, the shot has been taken and it took only 13 seconds.

I went home – developed the shot, and this is it. ha ha ha ha ha. I hope you like it.
