Vestrahorn pano. Award picture from photo contest summer 2017

I took this picture on a photo tour in August, with me where Ann and Greg Berry. Ann was standing on the grass top next to me and we were waiting to see if the sun would give us some colour on the clouds. Unfortunately that did not happen but when I was looking at the sun I saw the opportunity to get the sunburst between Ann and here tripod without letting here now I was taking the picture. It is a long exposure, panorama made of two picutres.

The mountain Vestrahorn is the most beautiful mountain in Iceland and gives you several options and angles to shoot it.
