Monochrome Madness 22

600_3161-eb_wMy contribution to Leanne Coles Monochrome Madness for this week is also taken from my upcoming series on Iceland. (click on the photo to see it enlarged)

Iceland is a phantasmic location for bw photography. Not only the landscape changes dramatically behind nearly every other edge, also the sky changes quickly because of constant weather changes.

In Landmannalaugar we started our hike uphill, when the sun started to win the fight against deep hanging clouds combined with high fog and drizzling rain. But, after about 15 minutes walk the rain seemed to get the upper hand again and accomplished us until we reached the top and the sun finally had won. She broke up the gray sky and lighted the now thin clouds from behind.

Lightspots were on some of the mountain sides while others parts were still in the dark areas in combination with the sky also made of  interesting structures.

Soon, you can see here much more on Iceland. Not only in bw, but also in color. So, stay tuned.

Take care!
