p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Kirkjufell Mountain


Kirkjufell or 'Church Mountain' is a 463 m high hill on the north coast of Iceland's Snæfellsnes peninsula, near the town of Grundarfjörður. It is claimed to be the most photographed mountain in the country. These photographs were taken an hour before midnight sunset. I got to the Kirkjufell to capture the famous Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall with Kirkjufell in the background. There were at least 20 photographers lined up, I didn’t find a spot I would have liked. I found a little spot at higher ground but my location was bad since the sun was still a bit high. I walked down a little and decided to photograph the mountain itself. Getting lower helped block the sun and was able to capture the light hitting Kirkjufell. After capturing first image I got back into my car and drove to the other side of the Kirkjufell mountain to get a completely different view of Kirkjufell. Finally returned back to original spot to capture the waterfall with Kirkjufell in the backdrop. I will post that image later.

Thanks for taking the time to view and welcome all CC

I think you chose two different and engaging perspectives on this iconic mountain. Lighting is beautiful. You were freed of the crowds. Color and detail look great and I love the smoothed water in the first.

Thanks Scott! Yes, this is an iconic location and there were just too many folks wanting to get the waterfall pictures with the mountain (definitely don't blame them). In order to avoid the sunlight coming from top one had to get a little lower and there is only room for few people. Also, I didn't want to take any chances of fall. The side view of Kirkjufell was really amazing and I wanted to get a bit closer to the mountain along the path in image but after few yards it seem like it was too muddy so just shot the image from far. I did go back at sunset to Kirkjufell and will post those images later.

Parul,

Fine work. Not spectacular, but solid images both. I can just feel the summer night's air in these.

Very nice images. I love the light as it reflects off of the peak in the first image!

Thanks Rajan, without the clouds and colors the image doesn't stand out but the light on the side was special. Glad you felt the summer night feeling.

Thanks DaleBerlin, the #2 image was very unique due to how different the iconic mountain looks, its texture, and the light.

Thanks Jay, glad you enjoyed the image. With little bit more clouds it could have added more to the image. I still enjoyed being there and witnessing the scene.
