Kirkjufellsfoss

Folks seem to like my #aurora images and I could use a serotonin nudge today. Maybe leave a comment? This is an image of Kirkjufell mountain (“Church Mountain”) and the waterfall near it, Kirkjufellfoss, under some stunning aurora in western Iceland on the Snæfellsnes peninsula, 2016. The image is a symmetrical mirror panorama created from a single frame. What image do you see in the swirling aurora? I see a falcon. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #northernlights #norðurljós #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld#Earth_portraits#modernvoyage #earthpix#WHPinspired #Electric_Shotz #photoartcrew#ArtOfVisuals

Gatklettur

The exquisite rock formation Gatklettur on the southern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in west Iceland. This is just a short stroll from Arnarstapi. This cloud burst was achieved by a very long exposure courtesy of the #LeeFilters #BigStopper 10-stop neutral density filter. Photographed near sunset in 2014. I hope you like it.• • • • • #stayandwander #WHPseasons#beautifuldestinations #wildernessculture#passionpassport #discoverearth#natgeoadventures#earthfocus #exploretocreate#whereeveryougo #thegreatoutdoors#greatnorthcollective #modernvoyage #earthpix #hypebeast#theweekoninstagram #agameoftones #moodygrams #lensbible#WHPinspired #Electric_Shotz #photoartcrew#ArtOfVisuals#iceland #mystopover #visiticeland

Lagarfljót

Sunset at Iceland's Lagarfljót lake in the east, 2014. I didn't see the fabled Lagarfljótsormur monster that lives in this lake but I had my eyes peeled during this long exposure with the #leefilters #bigstopper!

Árnes Hostel

I know it’s a self portrait but is it a #selfie if you’re not holding the camera and/or not looking into the lens? Anyway, here’s Wonderwall. —Iceland, Þjórsárdalsvegur, near Árnes under a stunning level KP5-6 aurora. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights #norðurljós #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld #portraitmood #theportraitpr0ject #Earth_portraits #DiscoverPortrait #igpodium_portraits #PortraitPage

Seyðisfjörður

Northern lights (Norðurljos) dance above 2-3 meter snow drifts on this road between Egilsstaðir og Seyðisfjörður Iceland 2014. This road would be closed for more than a week just two days later although, and I mean this with all sincerity, I’d happily welcome a week-long stranding in Seyðisfjörður and if you have the time I heartily recommend a visit. This image was a 5-10 second exposure where I painted the snow with a red-gelled light. I liked the idea of pairing the red with the green in the sky. I hope you like it.. . . . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #stars #astrography #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #MeetTheWorld #lightpainting

Reykjanes

You all seemed to like that photo of the Reykjanes rock under the #aurora that I posted the other day so I thought I'd share one from earlier that day at sunset.

Reykjanes

My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography shared a wonderful photo of the The Rock at Reykjanes yesterday. A few years ago Kjartan showed me this rock in person on my first of a 30-day odyssey in this stunning country. Here it is in situ under the aurora.

Vatnajökull Glacier

#TBT to deep inside the Vatnajökull ice caves in South Iceland on the other side of the meltwater river where the only light is from the sunlight filtering dozens of meters down through solid azure ice., 2014.. . . #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #TeamCanon #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland

Kirkjufell

I've shared a version of this before from my preposterous 50-hour trip to Iceland in December but I've been working and playing with it. Years ago in the darkroom I would often make prints of the same negative both straight and flipped horizontally as a way to trick my brain into a more clinical observation of the image's faults but I quickly fell in love with what happened when I abutted the images next to each other. In #woodworking, another passion of mine, doing this with thin wood veneer is called book matching. I tried this with my latest image from Kirkjufell and, well, here it is. I hope it inspires you!. . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #nightscaper #beautifuldestinations #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #MyTinyAtlas #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #aurora #northernlights
