Interesting Photo of the Day: Beautiful Icelandic Sunset

Photography has a lot to do with being in the right place at the right time. Whether that location is popular, hidden away, or generally ignored, it’s the photographer’s task to be there and capture a unique perspective through lighting, position, and framing. Sometimes, you stumble across a scene that is already set and waiting to be shot. In this case, it’s a sunset that the photographer knew he needed to capture, but he underestimated how beautiful the scene would be. Having the right equipment makes all of the difference in a situation like this!
