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.

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 Love

The dawn is not a quick affair in Iceland. The colours can be good for many hours especially on a mid-Summer night.

Rose Tinted

The black sand beach with magical chunks of glacial ice is where the Atlantic Ocean interacts with Europe’s largest glacier.

Oskar Ice man

This is a very popular ice cave and is normally full of tourists. On this morning, we were in there hours before the tourists.

Velvet Beach

This beach is the final land based resting place for ice chunks that calve from the retreating Vatnjökull ice cap.

GodafossSpring

This photo of Godafoss waterfall was taken on a Spring-time trip to North Iceland.

Colour Jelly

This was mid January on a 3 day photo tour. We hit the beach about an hour before sunrise after a comfortable breakfast.
