Iceland - The Classics
The incredible adventures that we got up in Iceland is still a daze as for most of the time that we were there, time just flew by. The immense scale of Iceland’s waterfalls and cliffs are breathtaking! We could not get enough of this incredibly photogenic country. The way the soft, warm light spills onto the green moss along the cliffs, the beauty of the mysterious black volcanic beaches, the strength of the North Atlantic waves all create an otherworldly experience.
Driving along the Golden Circle in 10 days was a massive feat, but we enjoyed every sleep-deprived minute of it.
Here’s a collection of some of our personal favourites from Iceland’s most famous sights.
On our last night in Iceland we headed over to shoot Kirkjufell and the famous array of small waterfalls known as Kirkjufellfoss. The shots we later came away with were some of the hardest we had worked for in a long time. Not only were the winds blowing us away at gale force 5, but the water spray from the nearby waterfalls felt like sharp knives against any exposed skin. Thankfully, there were lots of other photographers there who were just as crazy. The wind created one of our favourite shots from the trip with the combination of the cloud formation resembling an alien spaceship and the sharp point of Kirkjufell adding an extraterrestrial mood.
This now popular waterfall was shown to us by some other photographers that we had met while exploring Seljalandsfoss. While the space looks wide, it’s actually quite narrow inside the cave-like structure and we got soaked in a matter of seconds! We had to keep wiping our lenses to get a good shot. It was really slippery and busy inside so we never managed to get a shot on the actual rock. Next time!
Iceland - Off the Beaten Path
While Iceland’s now famous icons get most of the attention (deservingly so), there is so much to see in this beautiful country that still feels untouched and undisturbed by visitors. Here’s a collection of some of our favourite images from the more ‘off the beaten path’ sights in Iceland.
