Pretty, the slow shutter speed and hues give this a dreamy quality.

With a cracking of ice, and a shower of the accumulated snow, the beast crept up out of the stream. For millenia, it lay dormant in that land of snow and ice. Hiding, waiting for its time to come again.

Now, as it rose from its slumber, it had but one purpose. To feed.

In the little village of Reykvarjiki, the dawn of day had just begun, and children were wiping sleep from their eyes as they gathered in front of the fire to break their fasts, and the fishing boats were being prepared for another day of ice-breaking and the pursuit of livelihoods, and all went as it did every morning to the sound of voices and laughter and work and play.

By evening, the only sounds would be that of the cold wind howling through emptiness.

The water is too solid/smokey for me. Other than that, I think the colors and composition are fantastic.
