I think the angle of the basalt ridges above the two figures on the lower right create a dramatic and dynamic quality to this image.

This is an Infrared image. I used a 590 super color filter on my full spectrum camera to capture this image. I then converted the super color image to black and white. I like taking the sky here and in other such images to a nearly black tone when using IR. The couple on the lower right were taking pictures of the surf crashing along the black sand beach behind me in Iceland. I was planning on removing them, but decided that the sense of scale they add to the scene adds to the dramatic effect I was visualizing.
Camera: Canon EOS RP Full Spectrum Conversion with 590nm super color internal magnetic filter.
Lens: RF24-105mm F4 L IS USM @ 24.0 mm, f/4.5, 1/1250 sec. ISO 400. Edited with Photoshop and Camera Raw.
Any and all comments welcomed.
