May in the Arctic. Along the southeast coast of Iceland, the long days this time of year create a cool blue light as the sun sets behind the mountains.

I exposed a bit longer than normal to smooth out the waves and show off the entire coastline. The beauty of this place keeps me coming back time and time again, even if the surfing is just a bit cold.
