Summer 2014 Photo Tour — Icelandic Summer Light » Crown of Fire, Snæfellsnes

Crown of Fire, Snæfellsnes

Crown of Fire, Snæfellsnes

When you chase the light sometimes you catch it, and other times it catches you. One evening we had chased light to the town of Ólafsvík on the north coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. But it was getting quite late, and we headed back before anything significant developed since the group was running on empty. Halfway to our guesthouse on the south coast, we saw the sky begin to catch fire above us. We were traveling a dark, rough, twisty mountain road through the volcanic region of Snæfellsjökull. Picking a spot that afforded some kind of view of a mountainous ridge on the outskirts of the main glacial area, we stopped for a few quick photographs. The chill wind was blowing like mad, the clouds were like flame over the dark lava rocks, and I couldn’t help but think this would be a great location to film a fantastical story.
