This image was shot in Myvatn, northern Iceland. I’d been shooting there for several years now, but this was the most magical I had ever seen it. The entire area was covered with fluffy frost and snow, created by a combination of fresh snow, high humidity and low temperatures.

The highlight was the snow-laden trees. After shooting a blazing red sunset with my northern Iceland workshop group, the colors subsided and a blue/purple sky, adorned by a full moon, remained above the trees.

The final image was focus-stacked from 2 shots captured with my Sony a7R and Canon 16-35mm F4L IS lens at 16mm, F11, 8sec and ISO100.
