The whole, “magic hour is the entire day” is a special part of winter in Iceland that makes it slightly more bearable. This photo was taken an 30 minutes after the sunset on Winter Solstice and as you can see, the dynamic range is otherworldly. The shallow arc of the sun’s path through the sky allows for it to sit in the haze longer, and create this pinkish-purple hue. All I have to do as a photographer is find the right moment to capture it. I’m also lucky to have a fantastic model with me a lot of the time.
