Conveying Scale

Today’s featured image was taken in the Highlands of Iceland. I have had the great fortune to have seen about 85% of this extraordinary country and I have to say that the Highlands are truly my most favorite place, with all the texture, color, contrast, a photographer could ask for.


I often go to great lengths to ensure people are not in my landscape images, but in this case, I realized that there was truly no way to convey the vastness of this place without something manmade or human to convey scale. How many people can you find?
