Driving the Ring Road in Winter all alone, I was headed form the Eastern Fjords to Vestrahorn. The sky lit up as I was driving my camper van and I was desperate for a subject to shoot. As I saw this sea stack in the distance, I hoped the sky would last until I was able to park and jump out of my truck and grab my gear. When I got to the small parking area, I realized I needed to jump down what seemed like a small cliff to get down to the beach. I slid down some ice and landed on the soft, black sand. The sky did not disappoint and grew in its intensity and shades of purple.

I took as many images as I could to get the waves hitting the rocks at just the right time. After I managed to do a bit of free climbing back up to the parking area, I caught my breath after and reflected on witnessing this most amazing display of light and atmosphere, anchored by this beautiful and strong sea stack on Iceland's southeast coastline.
