Hofn Iceland

Traveling around in Iceland there are many spectacular locations to photograph.  The land is open with long vistas of dramatic landscapes.  While in the the town of Hofn I looked around for a location near the ocean to capture some of the stormy skies of the day.  The beaches in this area consist of black sand from volcanos that have erupted over the years.  The reflecting light on the black sand provides an interesting foreground for the mountain range in the background.  The weather conditions were rapidly changing on this particular day but I still had to wait considerable time for the clouds to clear the peak of the mountain.  I made several images in this location and all of them have a very different look with the moving clouds around the mountains and changing tides of the ocean.
