Worth A Flat Tyre?
Frostastdavatn, Landmannalaugar, Iceland. (With apologies for the Australianized spelling - it's as close as I can get for an email newsletter) Phase One 645DF & IQ180 with 110mm Schneider Kreuznach lens. 30 seconds @ f5.6, ISO 35
This photograph has a special memory for me.
As is often the case in Iceland, it was blowing a small gale up on the ridge, just above where this photo was taken, but by walking down a few metres, I was able to set up my tripod in relatively calm conditions. The area is called Landmannalaugar (incorrectly spelt in my previous correspondence) and it is understandably a favourite area with landscape photographers. And the name of this lake is also incorrectly spelt in the caption above because when I use the special Icelandic characters, they display differently on Macs, PCs and goodness knows what else.
