One of our highlights on the Iceland trip was visiting an Ice Cave. Not only was the experience of getting to the cave fun but the cave was pretty cool too. We had to use big four-wheeled drive vehicles to get these and then once there get into all sort of gear. The light inside was all blue as the ice filters away all other light, So, here is a photo of the ice cave ceiling and one of me looking like I am straight out of the Blue Man Group.
You may have noticed I have been absent from any recent posts. This was due to leading a workshop in Iceland for Luminous-Landscape. We had a great workshop and we saw and did some amazing things. It was quite the adventure for sure. We had everything Iceland could throw at us weather wise. From cold and high winds to beautiful mild winter weather with perfect clouds. So, to get things caught up I will share a number of images I had posted on Facebook during the trip. My camera for this trip was the Sony A7rII as well as my iPhone. I had fun using both and you’ll see images made with each. These images are just a drop in the bucket of some beautiful images I have come home with. More will be coming. I am leading another Iceland workshop in June. And in a few weeks will head off to Patigonia and the Altiplano for two back to back workshops. So, expect lots of images.
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.
