So one of those must visit places in Iceland is this magnificent Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon beach with black sand and gigantic pieces of ice just lying around. Although the first time we arrived there, there were no pieces of ice and it was raining like it’s the end of the world. But I saw some cute seals, that I quite liked, but nobody else wanted … Continue reading Jokulsarlon Black Sand Beach or How I got Kissed by Atlantic Ocean.

For now just enjoy the soft palette of the rolling in sunset. 1/200 sec at F … Continue reading Mesmerized by the Ice in Jokulsarlon.
Happy Monday, folks. Or whatever day of the week you are reading this. We are burning in our oven in Dubai, temperatures climbing higher and higher. Well, honestly I myself don’t suffer so much, just almost never go out. Air-conditioned reality. But when you have to go out, you just dream of falling down the waterfall, a really icy one, like Gullfoss for example. We … Continue reading Falling Down The Golden Waterfall – Gullfoss.
Happy Monday, dear Friend. We’re in the middle of the hottest season here in Dubai, and it feels great to look back at the pictures of Iceland trying to cool down. I wish I wrote all the stories I had down right away, but I am just too lazy to do it, so I will try to remember how it was. That morning we had … Continue reading Making Friends with Dogs in West Iceland.
Hello friend, Wishing you a beautiful evening or morning, whatever suits. I just got a schengen visa for 2 years and have no more double pages in my passport. Living the dream, hey… the passport is 4 years old and I have no more space left. But at least I can go to Iceland for the next 2 years at any time. Maybe I will. … Continue reading Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
I’ve been away for a bit, had to get married… busy times. But the story is different today. The story lies down in Londrangar Cliffs. Such a fascinating place to visit… but you better be careful. You see these lava rocks? They are pretty slippery, especially when you are trying to jump around with two cameras around your neck and a tripod. My friend Denny managed … Continue reading The Dangers behind Londrangar Cliffs
There are chances that you haven’t been to Iceland, but you’ve seen Kirkjufell Mountain and its’ waterfalls photos. That’s actually what comes up first in Google search. This is also the first location in Elia Locardi’s “Photographing the World” video tutorial. For me, it was the first sunset location in Iceland. I must admit, I haven’t researched much about photographic locations in Iceland before going … Continue reading Getting Lost in West Iceland – Kirkjufell Stories.
I just watched the video tutorial of Elia Locardi where he shoots the The Londrangar Cliffs in his F-Stoppers series of videos “Photographing the World”. I have two views of that location – one view from the same side as Elia, but at sunset, and the other one is where the sun is behind us. I looked at my photos of the sunset and first … Continue reading If The Sunset is Failing, Turn Around.
Iceland is a stunner for waterfalls. This location called Hraunfossar, Barnafoss is not so far from Reykjavik, just an hour drive or so. Amazing fact about this place is that beautiful streams of water emerge from under the edge of lava field. Beautiful shiny morning, icy paths that I had to manoeuvre around because I didn’t manage to buy crampons in Dubai. It was in … Continue reading Chasing Walter Mitty in West Iceland.
