Location: Eldhraun (80 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen

Between Kirkjubæjarklaustur and Holt, in south central Iceland, one comes over a plain called Eldhraun (meaning "fiery stones"). It is a fascinating landscape, made of lava boulders covered in Reindeer moss. Most boulders are round, but here and there, there are gestalts like frozen fountains or spruces. All in all, it therefore looks like Harz/Arber/Feldberg in winter, with the classical Arber-mandl - except for the turqouise colour tone.

In the pano, Myrdalsjökull can be seen. Unfortunately, I didn't get any better views of it later on.

Pano made from 28 pics (RAW), 70-200mm@118mm, iso-100, f/7,1, 1/500 sec, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, scaling and sharpening in Irfanview.


Das moosbedeckte Gestein wirkt ein wenig, wie eingefrorenes Meerwasser.
Tolles Motiv mit stimmigen Farben.

Again a great scenery. I very much enjoy the panoramas with the low horizon and dominant sky, but as in this case the mossy stones in the foreground are the subject, it would have been good to see more of them. Cheers, Martin

I appreciate much to see these lava field in a panorama, because we hurried through thhis landscape 2020. Regardings the proportions of the picture I tend to Martin's point of view. Regards Peter
