Red Fields on the Tundra

24 Hours till the new video!

Usually, I just release the video on the day of… with no prior announcement. This time I’m trying something different… a bit of a lead-up to the event. I don’t know if it’s better or worse… just different. So maybe you have something to look forward to on Sunday, besides being the best sleep-in day ever unless your parents wake you up to go to church and you say moooohooommm nooooo

Daily Photo – Red Fields on the Tundra

Across the middle of Iceland, there are all sorts of terrain. I don’t know if this is specifically Tundra. All my expertise in Tundra comes from Civilization where I know you can only grow one wheat, and sometimes there is a fur resource because of the seals.

When the sun is very low on the horizon, my normal temptation is to point the camera in that direction. But in the opposite direction, when the light and terrain is right, it casts a faint reddish glow across the ground. It’s a very nice effect and I did my best to capture it.

    Beautiful – and nice to see what gives the fields all that color! Looking forward to the video!

    WOW, huge expanse of land… that’s what I call remote farming. Are those giant molehills in the foreground? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Well I think you pulled it off! This shot almost feels like a terraformed Mars, and that structure could very well pass as a hanger for some futuristic space glider or something ๐Ÿ˜‰
    My most recent shot is from Bobs Cove in Queenstown, a magical little pier with perfectly calm turquoise waters…

    Before I post about the photo, I just read on yahoo news that Dallas, Texas is number 1 for the most speed traps in the country, and Austin, Texas, is number 2!! So watch your speedometer while in those two cities. Las Vegas is number 3, no surprise there, lol.
    You did a great job capturing the red cast on the fields and scenery, Trey. Another one of my favorites, mountains in the background, a big barn, looks like a little bit of water in front of said mountains, and beautiful sky!!!! This one will be on my desktop today. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a wonderful weekend, all. Hope most of you are having good weather. We are back to winter here in Montana, it’s not over yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Love the soft color in this one and the detail is really amazing.

  • Awesome shot! Very surreal like. I like the civilization reference too lol

  • Haha this could indeed be an alien hangar Eden – beware the Icelandic tundra!

    Great shot – though and wonderful light falling on the scene…..

  • Thanks all!

    Eden and Andy – it is very alien… I agree!

  • Very nice landscape, you did a fine work on this one. Thanks.

  • Hi Tray… You are the expert ๐Ÿ˜‰ can you please give me a comment on my site as well. I know you find some bad failures but will interesting for me what yoh think about my HDR ‘ s – but just when it can called a HDR image ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • You’re right!
    Great light thrown on the tussocks!
    Take care, Bruce.

  • Amazing shot .. so atmospheric

  • This picture is taken in Skagafjordur, Iceland, looking southwards. This is actually an old US army barrack, used as a barn for sheep. And no, these are not moleholes, we don’t have moles in Iceland ๐Ÿ™‚
