Another incredible light display in Iceland, this time on the south coast, the black volcanic beach at Vik. I'd wanted a shot like this for years after first visiting the place, and finally got it this summer - the distant (and huge) stacks silhouetted beneath as dramatic and colourful sky as anyone could wish for. It took a long while to materialise, and was three days in the rain of the making, but worth every minute. I composed with the final square crop in mind, everything seemed to fit tighter into that format. Using the river as a blatant lead-in, the placement of the elements within the image was fine tuned over half an hour, and then I simply waited for the light. A polariser cut down the reflection in the water close to hand, allowing the deep black of the sand to come through. ND grads held everything else in check...
