Taking nature photography in Iceland is traveling to the land of contrasts.
In addition to its cities, art culture, fishermen and its Nordic mythology, it offers endless natural possibilities such as black sand beaches, huge waterfalls, icebergs lagoons, being at the foot of glaciers, and, of course, seeing and photographing seabirds, such as Atlantic puffin, fulmar or arctic tern, among others.
For the practice of photography, we can find in Iceland a place where you can completely change the scenery just by driving a few kilometres, or traveling at different times of the year.
Summer or Winter, Day or Night, make Iceland completely change and transform, from being a friendly and simple place to travel, to a hard and inaccessible place, from 24 hours’ light, to night and darkness.
And therefore, whether in summer-winter or in the intermediate seasons, we can focus on one type of photography or take advantage of the months of change to work all possible types of photography.
Work the twilight light at Golden Hour or wait for the northern lights to appear in its skies.
Capture the midnight sun in summer, when the sun does not set but falls to the horizon line and returns to the top without going the other way.
Work the long exposure on the volcanic sand beaches, where the icebergs are stranded and offer blue elements that contrast with the blacks and the purples of the sunsets, giving charming results, which no one can resist to spend time looking at.
Waterfalls wherever you go, and each one more beautiful than the last.
The presence of green covering rock walls and entire fields that end up merging with the blacks and reds on the slopes of volcanoes.
Here are some of the results of my trips to Iceland. I hope we can visit him together soon.
