After a long days hike to the summit of Snaefellsjokull in Western Iceland, Remi Mcmurtry on the pinnacle beneath me suddenly emerged from the cloud, a heavenly scene unfolded before my eyes. Grabbing my camera i shot a series of photographs just before the cloud returned and we were swallowed into the whiteness.

Fabulous, well done. It also works very well if you crop off the top 3rd, making it even more abstract.
