Not All Doom and Gloom

Iceland

Flag of IS

I have been tending towards the darker and moodier images in my work in recent times. Today I really wanted to show that it is not all doom and gloom out there for a number of reasons. First is that I do love bright and colourful photos and I thoroughly enjoy being out there in these conditions. Second is that I wanted to show that Iceland can be bright and vibrant as well. Yes, it can be unforgiving, windy and rainy but it can also look stunning on a clear day, especially in autumn. Third is that we need to forget all the dark messages spread by the media and unsavoury individuals in these strange times and we need to realise that these too will pass and that there will be happier times ahead. I hope this photo does make you feel that way or at least it brings a little bit of light and colour into your world.

This is the view of Iceland that greeted us as we left Reykjavik and headed towards the highlands.

Silver Streams

Silver Streams by Darkelf Photography

Posted on 2016-01-27

This is a view from the east bank of Jökulsá á Fjöllum river in northern Iceland, near the Selfoss waterfall.

Luckily, the wind was blowing away from the camera and kept the water spray away from my filters. I was fascinated by the various flows in the scene before my eyes. The smooth texture of the clouds, vertical streams running down the cliffs and horizontal flow of the river working in unison together.

iceland, west coast, aerial photo

iceland from the air (2) by Franz

Posted on 2012-11-19

This is the coast north of Reykjavík. the town of Akranes is on the spit of land in the distance. clearly visible are a golf course, drainage ditches (common all over the island), the scattered farms - and the absolute lack of trees!

The snow-covered mountains on the far horizon are on the snæfells peninsula, more than 100 km away.

From my trip to Iceland; the view makes you feel how there are bigger things in the universe than just you.

Strokkur Geyser, Iceland

Yet another eruption by Devendra

Posted on 2019-03-04

Geyser is a Hot Spring in which water intermittently boils, sending a tall column of water and steam into the air. This image is a pan of several images in an attempt to capture the whole action and present it in one frame.

skogarfoss waterfall iceland black and white

Skogarfoss, Iceland by John Leech

Posted on 2012-10-20

Iceland excels at waterfalls. The good ones are so good that you end up driving past ones which you'd stop and study for days if they were back here in England. Skogarfoss is my favourite of the ones we saw, and its clear to see why it features on so many advertisements for the country, its proportions are perfect. Two photographers were already in position when the three of us arrived and several other appeared before we moved on.

Vik Church, Iceland

Vik Church, Iceland by Ian Bramham

Posted on 2012-10-17

This was photographed at night in the small coastal town of Vik in Iceland and shows the town's lovely church which is perched on a beautiful spot high up on a hill overlooking the Atlantic ocean.

Like many towns in Iceland Vik is located very close to a volcano and a glacier. The volcano in Vik hasn't erupted since 1918 and is long overdue. The worry for the inhabitants is that when it does eventually erupt again it may melt enough ice from the glacier that the town will be washed away.

Standing there, above so much glacier ice in person , is a humbling experience. Enjoy them and take your kids to see them while you can.

Strokkur Geyser Eruption, Iceland

When Earth Sneeze by Devendra

Posted on 2019-03-05

When cold water on surface flows down through these gaps and meets super hot lava / rocks, it boils quickly and the water vapours + hot water erupt out causing the phenomenon called Geyser.

Alternate Perspective: I like to think of Geyser something like Earth's Sneeze.

Raw Energy

Given that we have photographed this waterfall in wide angle from many a perspective, I had my 70-200mm lens ready when we went for a walk there during daytime hours. I was not especially committed to taking photos but after previous visits I had a vision to catch the power of the falling water in a possible close up shot.

We could never tire of sitting right on the edge of Dettifoss, watching the massive amounts of water falling down and hearing the thunderous noise accompanying the flow.

iceland 2014, arnastapi, rocky shoreline

rocky shoreline by Franz

Posted on 2014-09-01

I spent three and a half remarkable weeks in iceland this summer, taking three groups of mostly german tourists around the island. despite less than perfect weather conditions we all had a great time and saw fantastic and unforgettable places.

This image was taken near a village on the snæfellsnes peninsula called Arnastapi, which is well-known for its rugged and exceptional shoreline, with steep cliffs, exposed basalt columns, deep inlets and natural bridges.

I haven't been out shooting much, so I have returned to our images of Iceland from last year. It's always nice to return to Iceland.
