I am going to Iceland in a few weeks and it is winter in Iceland. Truly an amazing time of year to see Iceland. This image was made last June in the Highlands. An area most tourists don’t go and when you drive into the area it is like being on another planet.
On my last trip to Iceland we chartered a helicopter for the day. This is one of the abstracts from that shoot. Iceland looks so different from the air. This is part of the run off from higher elevations snow.
This is a shot made in Iceland. There are so many waterfalls in Iceland one could do a book on them alone. I just like the way this framed out in the viewfinder. Simple as that.
Iceland from the air takes on a whole new beauty of its own. This is a series I shot from a helicopter in Iceland last June. Just catching up on my image editing.
I worked this image a lot in Photoshop and in color it looks real nice. But, as I do with many images I decided to try it as a BW image and I liked it. BW offers a lot and somewhat a nostalgic feel. I have been going through the image catalog for 2015. I shot 55,000 images this year. Not one of my largest numbers but up there. I so often have no time to work on images and thus get far behind on image editing. The Holidays has allowed me a little time to catch up and as result I have several weeks worth of images to share on the blog. Hope you enjoy this image and more to come.
Happy New Year. This is my last entry for this year.
There is a story about this set of small and fast moving waterfalls in Iceland. My friend and Icelandic guide Daniel Bergmann always drove by these falls which are located right on one of Iceland’s main roads. Finally I made him stop and I shot my first set of images of these falls. One each of my many subsequent trips to Iceland it became a tradition to stop here with the workshop groups we were leading. Eventually he just nicknamed these falls after me as he didn’t know the real name of the falls. This is a multi shot pano of the falls.
So, you may be wondering why I have been posting so many Iceland images. The simple reason is I am enjoying the holidays and during some spare time that I normally don’t have I’m revisiting a lot of the trips I did last year and finally re-working the and editing the images. Iceland was big trip. Lots of incredible images were taken. I have a lot from the helicopter which will soon grace these pages. This one was done on the famous iceberg beach. The challenge with the iceberg beach is shooting something different from the 1000’s of images that are shown from there. I don’t claim this is different, just something I liked. On the last trip I did many at this location using the iPhone so I could get something different. I’ll posts those someday too. This was shot with the Nikon D800e at 1.6 seconds.
