In planning my trip to Iceland, Kirkjufell on the northern coast of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, is the one image I most wanted to capture. I planned and setup to capture this image at sunset (around 9:30pm), arriving two hours early to secure the ideal location. Along with about 10 other photographers we waited for the right moment as the light struck the Mounatin illuminating it in a stunning warm glow. As luck would have it, I captured a single person on the hill vieing the sunset, and giving perspective to the scene. Kirkjufell is the most photographed mountain in Iceland, and for good reason. As a side note, beware of the incoming high tides. By the time I left (around 10pm), I had to wade through water to get back to the road.
