This scene was taken at 3am in Iceland. Just look at the light available at that time!
I have to admit I walked this lonely wooden path. It took me through a lot of sulphuric mounds and up to a viewing platform. I returned from it okay…apart from the smell of rotten eggs up my nose…and so the title of this post is a little misleading. However, I do feel you can look at this shot and imagine the path leading on into the unknown – so I ran with that.
I took another of these shots in a self portrait style with my hooded character; however as I wasn’t wearing my hoodie the Berghaus coverall simply didn’t have the desired effect so I opted to process the set of brackets without me in them; the sulphuric steam was also much better in this one with a more even spread.
Over the weekend I processed a few images to try and build up a bank of them in preparation for my trips away. Out of my desired 16 images I processed 8, so halfway there, and I’ve enjoyed going back in to some of the Icelandic ones from earlier this year.
