When Iceland delivers no clouds...make LEMONADE!

I wonder how rare it is to see this place without clouds.

But I've always believed that if the colors do nothing for the photo, try a black and white. I was careful to not disturb the sharp reflection as I approached the scene.

When in doubt, black n' white it out!

To be honest, I don't think you lost anything in this picture by way of not having a cloudy backdrop (DAMNED unusual, though!). The B&W is a great option here. Love the shot.

Really like the image , but would be interested to see a colour version - if possible ?. Thanks and best wishes !

Thanks for the feedback Tom. Honestly I didn't think the color brought much to the image as it was only blue sky and foreground with yellowish brown on the mountains. A nice contrast to be sure and still worth editing so hopefully I'll get around to it someday. Cheers!
