"Red Planet" - Reynisdrangar - Iceland

Mastering such a situation isn´t easy due to an overwhelmed mind. Background story: The evening before we still had dinner at Höfn. It was heavily raining and we took a look at the weatherforecast. There was a small chance of gaps in the clouds in the 400km distant Vik. So we saddled our horses and took a long night drive along the south-east coast. We finally reached Reynisdrangar and after a chilly night in the car I took a look out of the window and couldn´t saw any gaps in the clouds. Only a little part of the sky at the edge of the horizon was slightly brighter. It is precisely this gap in the clouds that gave us about one and a half hours later this epic light mood.

Of course I also have a shot without the human element but thought it do justice to the image. Just as a size comparison or showing that this situation is REAL .
