The golden hour at Skútustaðir

Frans Blok Profile picture The golden hour is, in photography terms, the period before sunset or after sunrise. The sun is low in the sky, casting long shadows and setting everything in a magical, reddish light. Usually the golden hour is much shorter than sixty minutes, but the closer to the Arctic Circle, the longer it lasts. The sun really takes its time to disappear behind the horizon.

The golden hour we experienced one evening in April 2022 at Lake Myvatn in northern Iceland was perhaps the most beautiful I have ever seen. There were still quite a few clouds that were beautifully lit by the sun, which found a hole in the clouds just in the right place to shine through. It made the capricious volcanic landscape of Myvatn, with mountains, crater, islands and peninsulas, even more otherworldly.

This digital painting is based on a photograph from that evening, taken on the southern shore of the lake, near the pseudocraters of Skútustaðir. The two people, in the lower right of the image, give scale to the alien landscape.

My work can be located in the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
