I talk an awful lot about Iceland over here, but with good reason, it is such a beautiful, surprisingly accessible place, and I just love it. Most of the time, I share some of the many photos i’ve taken while traveling in Iceland, but I feel that I need to branch out and share some of the other awesome work that I have seen. Check out these five photos from Iceland which are currently some of my favorite ones.
Elia is a fairly well known photographer that spends his time traveling the world with his wife Naomi. They are no strangers to Iceland, and part of my original inspiration to visit the country. This shot of Svartifoss, a waterfall in the southern part of Iceland is just magnificent. He does a really great job showing the size and brilliance of the basalt columns.
Trey and his Stuck In Customs blog is another reason why I traveled to Iceland in the first place. Trey has showcased so many beautiful locations around the world that have inspired me to travel and Iceland is no exception. The shot of the open road perfectly conveys how beautiful and free Iceland feels.
This is one of the places in Iceland I have not personally made it to yet, Mount Kirkjufell which is situated on Snaefellsnes Peninsula in the western part of Iceland. Chris does a beautiful job capturing the iridescent glow of the northern lights over this fascinating mountain.
This plane wrecked in the 1970’s due to what the pilots thought was a lack of fuel, which later turned out to be an error due to them switching into the wrong fuel tank. The pilots surived the crash, and the fuselage was left behind on this vast expanse of black sand for all of us to explore. If you are looking to find out how you can get to this place, check out my write up here.
The color and drama in this shot is just astounding! Jökulsárlón is already an incredible place, but this sunset capture just takes it to a whole new level. The calm of the water is remarkable and the fact that in creates such a perfect mirror to a perfect sunset is great! If you get visit to opportunity to visit this lagoon, do yourself a favor and do not pass it up.
Well there you go! Five of my personal favorite Iceland photos from around the web. Selecting just five was no easy task, but I think these ones really do a solid job of showcasing what a beautiful place this is. Do you have a favorite photo from Iceland?
