I agree with all the comments. Great photo. Iceland is a fascinating place indeed.

Gerry, you are a master at creating such high contrast edges and such high local contrast. This image has either extreme highlights or just shadows. There are no midtones. A masterful look typical of your work. and at the other extreme is your landscape work which has only midtones!
You are an artist of a very high order.
