Location: Vindbelgjarfjall (400 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Iceland      Date: 2018-07-22, 13:11
A pano from the slope of Vindbelgjarfjall. Not easy to climb, since it is made of scoria. About halfway up, rain came in and started obscuring Mývatn, so my ambition of showing the whole lake from above was thwarted. This one turned out to be the best compromise of height and clear air.

The ground looks a bit like a tireyard. The small craters come from hot water in the underground, making occasional eruptions.

Pano made from 21 pics (RAW), HF 50 mm, iso-320, f/6,3, 1/400 sec, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, scaling and sharpening in Irfanview.


Great nature. I know this place. When I was in Iceland I climbed in this hill several times for training. I also have a Pano from there, but didn´t post it, because the weather was only grey.

For me a great reminder of a "night hiking tour" on 04.08.2008, when we stood on the top of Vindbelgjarfjall at midnight ... hard to believe that it's 14 years ago now !!! A stunning landscape panorama and beautifully framed, Jan.

Cheers, Hans-Jörg
