Westman Islands are a popular location south of Iceland. The islands are particularly popular for bird watchers because Puffins nest there during the summer.
Our group visited the islands last November. We had two days of some rain, but we were also lucky the weather cleared up in the evening, and we had two nights with beautiful Northern Lights.
This particular image was taken from one of the outlooks of the road on the main island. Clouds were clearing up, and we had the opportunity to capture the last light on the coast. It was a very windy evening, and this helped with some crashing waves on the coastline. The image was taken with a long exposure with the idea of capturing the movement of the clouds and smoothing the water on the coast.
