A nice view from the Hub of Reykjavík. This is a very busy location and I took multiple shots of each point so that I could mask a few people out of the pano. I like having people in my scenes, but I generally shoot 3 to 10 bracket shots for each camera position and I have not yet been good at moving objects in HDR images.
A nature paradise complete with icecap, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, and waterfalls, the climate is surprisingly mild (considering its northerly latitude) thanks to the Gulf Stream. Iceland boasts a modern infrastructure – in fact, it’s just over 300,000 residents enjoy what is one of the most developed and egalitarian societies on the planet, where most of the energy is provided by renewable sources and virtually all of the electricity is generated from hydropower and geothermal energy.
