“I took this image in northern Iceland which is just a fraction beneath the Arctic Circle… it was obviously snowing a lot and we were on much higher ground amongst the picturesque mountains. This little house seemed to be beautifully perched on top of the hill with the backdrop of the mountain broken by the fluffy white clouds that somehow seemed to give depth to the image, which was completed by the 2 rows of trees in the foreground and which carried your eye nicely through the image. Landscape photographers always think that you need to have a wide angle lens to capture a scene, however, this image was taken with my 70-200mm lens at 200mm, which demonstrates that this is not always true and a reason why you always need to carry a full range of lenses for scenes like this one. Settings were f11 at 1/100th sec at ISO 64 on my Nikon D850 camera body”
