Looking over the volcanic landscape of Þakgil, Iceland, I knew that I was seeing the most beautiful scene of my life.
I could have spent a day — or a week — photographing this unbelievable view. In truth, I didn't even know where to begin.
In a moment of weakness, I decided to take the largest possible panorama that I could of the Þakgil valley, then choose my composition later. Honestly, I felt like I was cheating — I always try to have an idea of the final image before I photograph a beautiful scene. Here, though, in the most beautiful place I had ever visited, I had no idea what to do... or so I thought.
I realized later that I had chosen, subconsciously, to take a massive panorama because a panorama truly was the only way to show the beauty of this scene. The stretching rivers, the snaking road, the dome-shaped mountain; all were essential to the final composition. The resulting image is almost entirely uncropped.
"Electric" is the highest-resolution image I have ever taken, weighing in at a whopping 196.7 megapixels. At every size I offer, this print will be unbelievably sharp.
