Congratulations to Gregg B. for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


So I just came back from my trip to Iceland. I spent one week there exploring (mostly) the ice beach area, and mountains near by. It's crazy beautiful in Iceland now, at the end of the winter. Still lots of snow but day is 11 hours long, so plenty of time to shoot away. The only problem I ran into was the wind. It can blow very hard and last two days (which is exactly what I've experienced). At 25 meters per second (about 55 miles an hour) it's practically impossible to drive, let alone shoot. I tried to shoot some waves to capture the wind/ocean drama but most of my shots were blurry. Yes, I increased the ISO to shoot fast, but still it was so hard and cold I've given up. I can always capture waves some place warm like Hawaii
Right before this trip I was exploring dunes in DV with Dave Dillemuth. We found great spot to shoot dunes and both got some awesome images. I wish I had my 14-30mm lens with me but it's not out yet so all my wide angle shots are done with Nikon 24-70mm f/4 and Nikon Z7.
So, this set is a mixture of my shots from Iceland and DV.

Oh man these are great! I normally don't like sand dunes at all (too much time on deployment), but these are very well done.

Thank you all. FYI images number 1 and 3 are focus stacking shots. I was close to the dunes so I had to used the stacking technique to get the depth I wanted. The forth one is a telephoto shot. I wasn't far from the dunes but I zoomed in anyway to get just this small portion of waves I liked.

I am getting goosebumps! Nice series. #1, #3, #5 all become "paler" and I like #3 the best personally.

I think the problem you are going to face with this set of images... wall space Outstanding work all around and if I had your talent... I would print them all.

Great job!

Hatch.
