Not All Doom and Gloom

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.

Essence of Photography: Shadows

Wherever there is light, there is shadow. If you've never considered using shadows as the main subject of your photos, maybe you should!
