Photographer's Note

Initially, my urge to go to Iceland was driven by the very few photos a member of this site posted a long while ago. This member is called Lonelywolf and you should really check him out as he has posted some of the best landscape photos this site has to offer!
So, he planted a seed and then it became quite the obsession and I was able to finally set afoot on the land of fire and ice 3 weeks ago. I have to say it absolutely surpassed my expectations!
Landmannalaugar is a place in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the highland of Iceland. It is at the edge of Laugahraun lava field that was formed in an eruption around the year 1477. It is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and surrounding landscape. For those familiar with the place, I was located right behind the small hill behind the campground, right were the Bláhnjúkur trek begins.


The road to Landmannalaugar is probably just as fun as actually being in this magical place. I wish you all to have the occasion to go there. Be careful though as there are several rivers to cross with your 4X4!

In workshop you will find a snapshot of my set up to take this photo…taken maybe an hour before this shot particular shot. And for those wondering, I actually desaturated the sky in this photo in order to have a better balanced photo.

cheers!
