Global Warming

By Hugeknot
... or maybe not!

You could walk round to the left a few months ago. But after a very warm February, the thaw is filling up Icelands Favourite place with flood water. As you can see there is not a lot of ice for this time of the year. If you look carefully on the right there is a big bag of rocks and this is one of many brought in to save the site.

Oh, by the way, this is a night image HDR and I hand stitched two images for an extra large view.

Yes, it's a massive view and the detail in the big version is impressive. It does seem to be melting early.

Worrying conditions Tony. Excellent image. Ron.
Incredible image Tony seeing the lights way in the bg as well as the fg is quite something, but worrying that yet another frozen waste is being lost.

All the very best
