18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Lighthouse in Reykjavik

A lighthouse in Reykjavik. I went to Iceland in December 2019 to see what it is like to be there in winter time when it is cold and the days are very short. The sun rises at about 10:30 a.m. and the conditions for photography are mostly low light which makes it quite interesting. The intention was to capture the atmosphere with the nice contrast between the blue surroundings and the yellow lighthouse with its green light and the snow-covered mountains in the background.
