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!
I could go on and on….
But it’s time I worked up a few images of wildlife! Stay tuned!
