Midnight sun by snowyturner

On a trip to Iceland last June, we experienced about 23 hours of daylight and one hour of twilight each day. This image of the village of Laugaras and the distinctive mountain of Vordufell was captured around midnight in some very unusual light. I tweaked the temperature in Lightroom in an attempt to provide a faithful match of the colours on display, and then increased contrast by about 15%, increased foreground exposure by two stops and cloned a few rogue elements. Thanks for looking.
