Picnic in the Snow

While the Winter in Germany this year maintains its mild demeanour, I took the chance to clean some of this year’s backlog, starting with this image taken in a ice covered plain with the Hverfjall volcano in the back, which last eruption occurred around 2500 year ago. If you are the region, don’t forget to try the amazing Þorramatur — a selection of traditional Icelandic food, consisting mainly of meat and fish products cured in a traditional manner, cut into slices or pieces and served with rúgbrauð (dense and dark rye bread), butter and brennivín —that is served in a couple guesthouses in the area.
The photo consists of a 5 bracket HDR, the tonemapped was steered in order to extract the details form the lava rocks, with final retouches done in photoshop.
