The first time I saw images of Iceland’s Vestrahorn I knew that I had to visit and photograph this magnificent mountain range. It is simply one of the most spectacular ranges right on Iceland’s south eastern coast.

Vestrahorn is quite accessible from the nearby town of Hofn, and makes for stunning sunset photos in any (every) season.

Vestrahorn requires a wide lens—this images was made with at 8mm on my m43 camera (16mm FF equivalent).

Alternatively it is a great scene for a panorama. In fact, if you wanted to get any closer to the range you would need to go pano unless you have a super-wide angle lens.
