The land of the midnight sun
Iceland is endlessly evocative. The weather. The names of its mountains. An enormous country of breathtaking landscapes. Truly a photographers delight. To me it’s not the cliche images of icebergs and auras that appeal. The winding roads that circle the island. The vivid colours. The intimate slices of this beautiful land.
It’s amazing how there is always tone and texture even in something that looks just grey. I find the subtle shifts in colour and the pools of light on the sea so peaceful. The bands of light and dark just help to give some context.
1 AM, Iceland
