Iceland Photography Adventure

Landscapes

If I had to close my eyes and describe Iceland, I would speak of dark colored volcanic hills, draped with lime green mosses.  I would speak of brilliant green grasses rarely interrupted  by trees.  I would tell you about a landscape where, especially along the coast, waterfalls are in your view much of the time.  I would speak of black sand beaches and white fulmars dotting the cliff faces.  Oh, and I would mention that glaciers sometimes lurk in the clouds, often pouring out between hills.

This is a dramatic landscape.  A young landscape that is constantly changing.  A land where the changing geology and receding glaciers often rewrite the book – about how big Iceland is, about where the largest lake is, about which waterfall is highest.

And it’s a landscape that calls the photographer to celebrate it with design!
