This waterfall has to be the most photographed location on all of the island. People (and birds) flock to this location to get views from every single possible angle. For me, it was a chance to practice some non-tripod work with my camera while trying to get the right kind of angle.
In Iceland, these innovative houses were constructed because of the climate and lack of resources. The innovative style of building is better insulated from the elements. I had known about these types of building, but came accross so few of them on my trip, until I saw this one.
Living in a place that includes lava rock formations, white-capped mountains, and some of the most amazing and otherworldly views; it’s easy to forget it gets cold here. And, for those living in this small village, I think they’ve become experts in cold management.
While climbing Skogafoss on the southern coast of Iceland trying to beat the quickly arriving sunset, I turned away from the glorious waterfall to this see this view of the sun breaking out of the clouds. On a day where rain was nearly relentless, seeing the sun shining on this land was incredible.
The striking beauty of the sea smashing into these coastal lava rocks was hypnotic. In many ways Iceland can seem like another planet, cold and captivating.

Very reminiscent of Alberta looking towards British Columbia., this Icelandic landscape is as beautiful as it is cold and unforgiving. Days on this northern are short, and I really wanted to capture some of the landscape in all it’s glory. Stopping along the side of the road near a farm house gave me a nice view of this mountain range.
