Stone Rooted

Menacing low clouds were rolling down the mountain in west Iceland. I chose a low angle to match the cloud line with the roof and used the hollow lines in the stone wall to create this unique, moody, unseen perspective of this so famous and beautiful Buðir Church.

Shot with Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF10-24mm, edited on PS2019.

Great shot! I really like also how you've chosen to portray the final image, dark-moody, it is cinematic, love it.

Thanks so much man. Yeah, I kind of pursued that cinematic approach, mostly I wanted to change the typical three dimentionality to a 2D feeling too. Happy to hear you like it.

Amazing perspective you've found there. It almost makes the church look like a kit model. And great processing, it has nice moody colors.

All good but for me the best part is the perspective as it messes with your head and leads you to look at it over and over. Really nice shot.

You are totally right. It looks like the church and the rocks are in the same distance. Happy to hear you like it Mike :)
