The Magic Cloth Photography Trick
What you do:
Begin with a filter or low light for a to acheive a long exposure, then over expose the photograph by two to three stops.
It is preferable to work with a long Shutter speed. 2-5 sec requires a quick, but controlled action to cover the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 sec allows for a extra exposure of the middleground.
Magic Cloth Movement
Normally, I use very fast downward motion and slow, controlled upward actions.
Vary the Movement to allow a dozen short exposures of the clouds, instead of a single medium exposure (30 sec + exposures only).
Spot meter for the highlights and then x 4 to get the total exposure time.

Icelandic, belongs to the Germanic language family and is very difficult to learn.
Did you know this about glaciers?
If the ice sheets were to melt entirely, sea levels would rise by around 180 feet. As a result, New York would become an underwater city!
