2. Mount Kirkjufell

Okay Okay. Lets just settle one thing right now. No, I did not Photoshop this image. No, I did not enhance the color. I actually had to lower the vibrancy and other settings because right out of the camera it looked too unrealistic. I took this photo on the last night of my trip out to Europe-this one, in Iceland (of course). For all of you that dream to see this one day, I can assure you that it is as amazing as it looks, minus just a little brightness (at least the ones I saw). Sanding looking at these literally left me breathless. THIS IS WHY I PHOTOGRAPH- God's Glory displayed in the heavens. GOD IS INDESCRIBABLE. Anyways, I have plenty more images coming your way over the next weeks, so stay posted! Btw, This WAS the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life.
