I was hoping for warm morning light for my first visit to Vestrahorn in Iceland but, instead, I was greeted by rain and winds up to 50 miles an hour. I stepped outside the van and was immediately knocked on my butt. The blowing black sand made it difficult to photograph the mountains from the beach so looked for a location away from the sand. I found this spot with some interesting detail in the ice, so I set up my tripod low to the ground to minimize the camera shake from the wind and used a high ISO to achieve a fast shutter speed.
