Photos in Focus

I have gathered here today a collection of Iceland photos with descriptions, location information and photography techniques. Some are just brief blog entries, but others are longer analysis of the photography techniques or the post processing that went on behind the scenes.

Magical Dawn

A beautiful Summer morning at Jokulsarlon with some icebergs reflecting in the glacier lagoon.

Aurora Mountain

This South Iceland spot can be very good for Northern lights because there is a possibility of capturing a reflection of the Aurora in the landscape.

Treasure Iceland

If you catch the glacier ice beach at the right time, you can photograph the incredible colours of a sunset or sunrise.

Tiny Comet Aurora

This night photograph, from Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in Iceland, captured a comet disappearing into the North sky over Iceland.

Hali Milkyway

For Iceland based photographers, photographing the Milky Way is generally something we do while we are waiting for the Northern Lights to appear.

Spikes on Earth

This Northern lights photograph teaches me to be humble at this time in my life. It represents the place I am at in the universe, and maybe you too?

Dynjandi Rock

There is every type of waterfall here. The strong flutes, the power walls, the delicate, flowing water cascades through green moss.

Shot to nothing

One thing I am sure of though is that despite the low visibility, the arctic circle must be in this photograph.

Jokulsarlon Night panorama

Northern lights can add an extra dimension to night photography because they add strong colours and depth to the sky.

Aurora Wash

This Northern Lights shot was blessed with a superb wash of ocean during the exposure.

Red Blaze – Northern Lights Exposure

Although the Northern lights require a long exposure, the object is often to reduce exposure time as much as possible to achieve a usable exposure and with minimal star trails.

Fjallabak Night

Taken on July 17, 2011 on a photo tour through Iceland’s Southern Highlands (or Fjallabak – behind the mountains).

Ice Gorge

This is at the Fjaðrargljufur river canyon in South East Iceland. The unassuming river winds like a snake between the rocks.

Blue Wing

We had driven to Jökulsarlon very early and could see that a good sunrise was developing, but there was very little ice on the beach.

Budir Sunrise

The weather was cloudy but as we turned the corner, a gap in the clouds allowed some beautiful, Winter light onto the scene.
