Lómagnúpur Mountain

Lómagnúpur Mountain

Lómagnúpur Mountain is in the South East Iceland between Kirkjubæjarklaustur and Skaftafell National park. It is named after the Lómag – a bird that frequents the cliff face. Several huge landslides can be seen around the base of the mountain which is the highest cliff in Iceland. This photo was taken from the Skaftafell side in the middle of the sandur (Icelandic desert).  I love the way that you can see how the wind and weather interacts with the Icelandic landscape.  It is the wind patterns in the snow and sand which give this scenic photo interest throughout.

So quiet it hurts

At the time, it was so quiet that all I could hear was my mild tinnitus and it was so bright that I could see all my eye floaters… I never felt so old than in the presence of Lómagnúpur Mountain.

Glacier Landscape 

The great thing about taking photos of the Icelandic landscape is that the land is so diverse that it teaches you photography as you shoot. Imagine a fashion photography workshop where you go through several different lighting setups along with backgrounds that alter in colour, shape and aspect ratio. This would teach you a lot about fashion photography. Likewise, the changing light, colours and proportions of Iceland’s famous landscapes is a unique learning opportunity for any amateur enthusiast.

 

Lómagnúpur mountain Because this location is right on the edge of a huge glacier, Lómagnúpur mountain can appear in a mixture of seasons in one photo. You can get great pictures from both side of the mountain and there are usually safe places to stop. Below is a scene from the Nupstadir when access was allowed.
