Eylanda or Iceland

Considered as the queen of the mountain or north is one of the most popular destination right now to shoot a wide range of landscape topography. It is also one of the few spots to shoot the northern lights. I would like to share my adventure of Eylanda.

My first salvo and post of my series from Iceland appropriately called...

EXTREME LIGHT | September 2013







I just got back from an almost 20 hour flight from Iceland. I spent 10 days travelling from the Easter part to shoot locations in the Golden Circle to the South. Our visit was not in good timing, a huge wave of clouds swept the country (also parts of Norway) and gave us little light to work with.

This was the last sunset shot of Jökulsárlón or literally translated to glacial river lagoon. We spent two sunset here and both days we were given good light in exchange of an overcast evening.

STANDING AT THE EDGE | September 2013

This was taken in Jökulsárlón, near the outlet where the lagoon goes to the Atlantic Ocean. Every turn of the tide, smaller chunks of ice is pulled towards the sea and is washed by the beach.

The strong waves that morning provided the right elements, instead of shooting towards the sea, I decided to include the glacier mountains as it is being lit up by sunlight.

Thanks. I wanted one image that is unique and displays the light that day. This had little editing as llight was really fantastic that day.

Thank you again. With so many shots of Jokursalun, I wanted something unique and enduring. I hope I did capture that.

LAND'S END | September 2013

Lóndrangar are a pair of single sharp and steep cliffs, or volcanic plugs of basalt, that have been hewn out from softer surrounding rock by erosion. At 75 m and 61 m respectively, they are a singular sight, rising above and outside the ocean front due east across from Malarrif and some 10 km from Hellnar, on the southern coast of Snćfellsnes peninsula, Iceland (from wikipedia).

My take on this famous landmark in Iceland. Shooting this place is quite easy, you park your car and walk about 100meters up the hill. The difficult part is the wind, having exposures of longer than 30 seconds would prove difficult especially with light and weak tripods.

Another challenging aspect is that from time to time the edge of the cliff shakes as strong waves hits the base. I for one though it was an earthquake.

Saw #1 on 500px I think. Looks great, and it has such a nice colour palette.
