Iceland – the land of fire and ice.
It certainly lives up to its title.
With Iceland having become one of the ‘must see’ places for so many in recent years it has become quite a trendy place for photographers to gather.
I am in no way a landscape photographer and feel much more comfortable with wildlife, however as Iceland has kind of become home in the last years for me, I have taken some landscape images.
Many images below are of the mountain Kirkjufell in the small town of Grundarfjörður. Now almost so photographed it has become a kitsch image Kirkjufell’s distinctive shape and waterfall is what draws hoards of tourists to her. However before she became so famous I was working in Grundarfjörður and got to visit and photograph her alone, in all seasons. Such a pleasure.
During 2021 when the Fagradalsfjall volcano erupted in Iceland I was lucky enough to visit a number of times. One time happened to be in a helicopter, when I was invited by some whale watching guests to join them on a helicopter ride over the volcano and the south of Iceland as they had a space free! The glacier rivers and highlands in the south of Iceland are a photographers dream from the air.
