The simplicity of this landscape reminded me of the iconic work of Lawren Harris – famous for his Canadian landscape paintings.
This is the largest waterfall in Iceland and the most powerful in Europe – 330 feet wide with a drop of 144 feet.
Hvítserkur is a 15 m high basalt stack along the eastern shore of the Vatnsnes peninsula, in northwest Iceland. The rock has two holes at the base, which give it the appearance of a dragon (or terrier) who is drinking.

Skógafoss is one of the nicest waterfalls in Iceland which means a lot of tourists (and long delays waiting for people to get out of my frame). I gave up waiting and found that I like this particular photo. It gives a sense of scale to this 60 metre (196 feet) waterfall.

In the Eastfjords the end of the rainbow leads to Seyðisfjörður Kirkjan.

A beautiful waterfall in southeast Iceland. Fagrifoss is 80 meters high and is in the river Geirlandsá. Access to the waterfall requires the crossing of a river ford, for which a 4x4 vehicle is needed.
After a long day of shooting, the sun was coming up at 3:20am. It lit up Bláfjall mountain with such amazing colour that I hit the brakes, again. I pulled over, set up my tripod, and took my final photo for the day.
Black Beach in Vik

The beautiful long mane of this horse reminded me of a 60s style hairdo.
Icebergs from Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon flow out to sea and end up on Diamond Beach. The black basalt sand contrasts nicely with the clear glacial ice. I spent a few hours just sitting here, soaking it in.
