Hi Tony. A warm welcome to TN. This is a fine picture to start with. Firstly i like the warm colours in the clouds . With the picture of the church mountail as the main focal point. I am neever to sure about this look in water but it works fine in this one, Well take I look foward to some more from you.

Wooooow, that's fantastic, Tony.
What a wonderful shot - I love the silky effect of the water - which camera-settings have you used here, exposure/time?
Brilliant shot to start here.
A warm welcome on TN, enjoy the time

Hi Tony,
This is a spectacular naturescape taken with good taste and perfect exposure. The low shutter speed produced a dynamic water movement within the frame. Very good indeed! Welcome to TN my friend.

I'm joining the others to welcome you and congratulate your introduction to TN with this beautiful landscape of Iceland. Lucky Englishman in Reykjavik, surrounded by pristine nature and wonderful land. I once stopped in Iceland, the plane had to add some more fuel because we left Paris too loaded... and when they opened the side doors of the plane so we could see the landscape, you could hear Ohs and Ahs all over the plane, with people pushing gently in order to view what was waiting outside. Too bad we couldn't get down the plane and ever since, I dream of Iceland. I remember the roundness of the air, the limpidity of the sky and the high sun. When we took off, I remember the almost dark grey landscape with one road thread in the middle of vastness... and on the coast beautiful little houses. Well well, I digress now, and this picture is breathtaking and brought back all those memories to me. The beautiful softness of the water add to the otherwise isolated landscape, vast and pure. Thank you for this beautiful view, and welcome to TN!

Dear Tony!

I notice that you are new here on TN and would like to welcome you. I also want to congratulate you for this magnificent picture. It simply is superb. The blurred bright river contrasts so nicely with the well focussed darker mountain and the whole is highlighted by a romantic sky. Well seen, well done!

Kind regards


Hallo Tony
Welcome to Trek Nature. I trust you will have a great photographic journey, meets lots of people and just enjoy all that is shared among one another.

This is brilliant photography. An absolute showpiece at its best. Colour, detail, focus, sharpness, composition and overall presentation are excellent. I envy you for being able to witness such a wonderful landscape. A great scenery worth a well deserved 10 out of 10. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

hello Tony and welcome to TN!
very beautiful composition full forms, the effect of speed successful, splendid attribution of colours, marvellously photo!
keep photographing! TFS

Hi Tony,
A late welcome to TN. I am glad to see another landscape photographer. This is a real beaty with such great exposure and composition. I love the action on the FG by the movement in the water and the nice balance created by the sunlit clouds. The mountain looks massive and is perfectly positioned. I really like the mutted colors.

Hi Tony

I really like this picture, there is so much to see and there is so much space in it. - the long exposure has helped the water hughely - I'm guessing taht there was a graduated ND filter across the top, or some pp work afterwards? great composition.
