This is Hvítserkur in the North of Iceland.
I’ve always wanted to see this rock standing solo in the ocean, so it was great to be able to make the trip to take photos of it :)
We spent a good 1 and a half hour there shooting and finding good spots, all the time while we were being watched by a seal who kept following us up and down the beach, he was really curious about what we were doing, while his other seal friends were much farther out. It was such a pleasure to see them there, but this is a known area for seals.

    Wow, that is a stunner of a photo! Really fantastic! Such a silky quality to the water and sky, and that wonderful silhouette of the rock with the mountains in the background… just fantastic.
