p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Icelandic Highlands Gems - The Eye


This series on the Highlands of Iceland aims to collect a new class of visual objects under one umbrella. These are not the familiar attractions spelled out on the map – the dreamlike mountains, lava fields, volcanic craters, waterfalls, lakes, and rivers – that define Hálendið (“The Highlands”). Rather, these are transient landforms or an innominate tranche of the landscape that, under certain conditions, make you think you are under the spell of Photoshop sorcery.

More in the latest post on my photo blog.







The Eye







A Highlands gem

Hi Rajan...

I always enjoy your photography and your FM and blog posts about Iceland and Goa. This post is no exception. And, as a non-photographic tip my hat to you, your use of the word "innominate" sent me Googling.

Dennis,

This entire area - Fjallabak Nature Reserve - is a hotbed of volcanic and geothermal activity. Very likely there are/were hot springs at this particular spot.
