Kálfshamars Light - Skagafjördur in Northern Iceland
This gorgeous cove is at the entrance of the Húnaflói bay on Skagi Peninsula in Northern Iceland. The Kálfshamars Lighthouse was completed in 1940 with its square cylindrical design.
Upon arrival in the afternoon, this was a fun place to wander around and I remember falling asleep for a few hours not sure if the clouds would lift. Fortunately, the clouds opened just enough for the sun to peek through providing a dramatic and colorful scene.
The photo is a stitched panorama of two 24mm frames at f/16, ISO100 with a 1 second exposure on a Sony a7riii camera. A graduated neutral density filter helped keep the highlights from blowing out too much. Post processing was mainly to brighten up the foreground and the "light" the lighthouse.
I was honored this image took 1st Place as the 2018 Overall Projected Image of the Year at the Boston Camera Club.
