Blood Red by Dee-T Blood Red by Dee-T
Vestmannaeyjar,
Iceland

Our first day in this remarkable archipeligo saw us holed up inside sheltering from driving rain and wind. The weather cleared remarkably on the second day we were on the island roaming around Heimaey. in the evening, our primary objective was to seek those elusive puffins! We actually found a few which almost distracted me from looking out for sunset. I had planned a sunset shot as much as possible from using the application "photographer's ephemeris" which gave me an idea of where to be on the island in order for the sun t o be setting behind the three distant islands. This image looks heavily manipulated but in actual fact, the only significant things I've done to it are some sun flare removals and the rest is almost SOOC. Had to use 3 reverse and 2 stop hard edge GNDs to control the sky lighting for the effect.
