Ice and darkness near Akureyri. (Einar Gudmann)

It´s dark outside despite it´s almost noon. January is kind of a long exposure month in Iceland. When it´s cloudy it´s no use waiting for the light in photography. It´s not really coming. Around Akureyri where I live in the northern part of Iceland it´s ice everywhere. The sky is at the best a softbox around noon and at sea level it looks like Jöklulsárlón lagoon. The closest thing to daylight we have is only lasting for two hours or so. Ice is everywhere which means that I photograph ice and it´s motives. It´s easy to be lazy these days but the motives are still out there. These photos are taken near Akureyri few days ago when the sky showed some color. I used Lee Big stopper, 71 seconds exposure, f9.
