On the way east through the black desert, the Vatnajökull glacier lay in the distance. Between us and the glacier was a vast desert valley with only a few old craters rising from the plain.
These pictures show once again how exciting it is to use a powerful telephoto lens in landscape photography. I took a panorama of 10 individual images at a focal length of 427mm. The two images in the header are the right and left sections of the panorama. To give you an idea of what a great view we had that day, the edge of the glacier was about 45 kilometers away from me in the first image, and the basalt structures are about 28 kilometers away in the second. A telephoto lens also compresses the image a lot.
The entire panorama is a 145 megapixel image with a width of over 27,000 pixels!
