A beautiful Capture from an amazing land...
The mountain & clouds combine to give the appearance that they are rushing bye.

Belated HB, Chris! The colors are stunning and I like how the cloud streaks lead your eyes to the mountaintop. Thanks for sharing this one. #10321092

The lighting on the land is striking, and the clouds erupting from the summit are the crowning glory. #10321093

Thanks... the weather on this part of the trip (northwest Iceland and into the Westfjords region) was simply spectacular, and I had to stop often for some ultra-wide-angle shots featuring great clouds. #10322343

Thank you Dayna...! Felt pretty weird to have just about only nature to photograph, after so much focus over the years on architecture ;) #10323275

I loved the combination of mountainous landscape and streaks of clouds in a pretty blue sky. We had great weather during the days in the northwest
of Iceland; conveniently for my sister's outdoor wedding, as well as my birthday the next day, when I made this ultra-wide (EFS10mm) exposure.
Seen in the Westfjords, not long after leaving the car ferry terminal; I believe we were near the Brekkuvellir farmstead.
