Late evening sun slicing through a gap in the clouds and beginning to light up the side of one of Iceland's most beautiful mountains. The foreground waterfalls are just starting their spring thaw. This was a tricky choice - I've got a series of photos over a period of ten minutes, and the light became progressively stronger. The sky, however, suffered and the mountain seemed a little over-bearing when the light was at its strongest, so I've uploaded the shot with the weakest lighting, but that seems to have the best balance overall of contrast. Maybe sometime I'll upload a stronger example and people can offer their own opinions on the merits of each!
