A collection of landscape photography shot in Iceland during November 2010. This was my second visit to the land of fire and ice and was quite an intensive tour of the south of the island to locations such as Vik, Dyrholaey and Jokulsarlon and what turned out to be rather a wintery expedition to the Snæfellsnes peninsula and the western fjords.

Iceland is without a doubt a truly awe-inspiring place to photograph, there is such diversity around every corner and even though this was my second time visiting some of these locations I am sure I will be back again very soon. In the south of the island there is an abundance of black sandy beaches, dramatic rock formations, amazing glaciers, magnificent waterfalls and even the wreck of a DC3 aeroplane. In the north west I found a frozen wilderness with deep fjords, vertiginous mountains, ship wrecks, dangerous roads and lashings of snow.
The one thing that always amazes me about Iceland is the shear amount of empty space, yes the south coast has some amazing scenery such as Skogafoss waterfall, the beaches at Vik and Dyrholaey, the Skaftafell National Park and finally the glacial lagoon Jokulsarlon all within about 3-4 hours driving however in between them there is almost nothing, just huge empty plains of black gravel, lava fields and wasteland. When you start heading into the north west on to the Snæfellsnes peninsula and the western fjords, you start to realise just how remote parts of Iceland are it is not un-common to drive for hours and not pass another vehicle or for that matter see a single shop.
This work covers the diversity that I found in Iceland from the magnificent natural world such as black sandy beaches, rock formations and dramatic waterfalls to the impact man has had on the landscape. This human impact takes two mains forms, the debris man leaves behind such as aeroplane and ship wrecks to man’s need for power in the form of geothermal power stations.[/one_third]
