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

The Houses of Parliament

Ah, London! There's really nothing like it in the world. Here is Westminster Bridge, the Elizabeth Tower, and the Houses of Parliament over the Thames late one night. This is an image born of indecision. I haven't worked out how to stop the Sony RX1Rii from making a long exposure once I have started one so I wind up with a handful of images like this. I found this one to be delightful and it looks cracking good when printed on metallic glossy paper. I hope you enjoy it!. . . #London #BigBen #🇬🇧#nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #MyTinyAtlas

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

Iceland Top Nine

Kex Hostel

I was only in @Kexhostel in Reykjavik for a few hours to sleep and write while enjoying some delicious tea and breakfast but this place made me feel welcome and relaxed. This man at the desk patiently explained everything I needed to know and politely tolerated my broken Icelandic. What can I say? I'm learning! Be well, Kex! See you next time! . . . #portraitmood #theportraitpr0ject #Earth_portraits #DiscoverPortrait #igpodium_portraits #PortraitPage #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #MeetTheWorld #hostel #wanderlust #5StarHostels #hostellife #guesthouse #reykjavik #BlackandWhite #Acros #bnw

Kirkjufellsfoss

Kirkjufellfoss, Snæfellsnes peninsula, west Iceland. Adjusting to the fixed 35mm f2 lens on my Sony RX1R-ii camera has been a creative challenge. I'm so accustomed to the field of view at 17mm that I walked way too close initially to this thunderous waterfall. Perspective is the key here. With a fixed lens I'm forced out of my normal practices and need to get even more creative. Standing rather far away this time and getting my shoes wet right on the lapping edge of this water I was able to photograph this beautiful scene complete with the full reflection of the mountain. As the hashtag goes, you've got to #exploretocreate.. . . #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe

Snæfellsnes

A gorgeous sunset somewhere on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in western Iceland. My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography and I drove 3 hours in my tiny rented Toyota YoYo all the way up here from Garður on Saturday with the hopes of catching aurora dancing around the Kirkjufell. This is a panorama made from eight 42MP Sony RX1R ii frames stitched together and it's way too wide for IG! I hope you enjoy the photo!. . . #sunset #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #panorama #wide

Svínafellsjökull

❄️ It's currently rather cold outside. I'm snuggly and warm inside with a cup of tea in hand fondly remembering that time I considered hiking on the Vatnajökull glacier (Svínafellsjökull, precisely), came to my senses, and hiked back to the car after taking a few choice photos. Stay warm out there!. . . #iceland #mystopover #DarlingEscapes #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #glacier #hiking #takeahike #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #exploremore #awesomeearth #stayandwander #passionpassport #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision

Kirkjufellsfoss

Kirkjufell (church mountain) and a part of Kirkjufellfoss on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in western Iceland. My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography and I drove 3 hours in my tiny rented Toyota YoYo all the way up here from Garður on Saturday with the hopes of catching aurora dancing around the mountain. We set up our cameras and waited for hours in the delightfully cooperative weather and finally got our reward at this beautiful place. We didn't luck out with the cloud cover but given I was only in Iceland for around 55 hours(!!) on this trip I'd say that I got remarkably lucky! This is a frame from a time lapse video I'll share in the future. I hope you enjoy the photo!. . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #astrography_ #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe
