Iceland Summer Workshop 2013 & Aerial Photography

Daniel Bergmann and I have just concluded our 2013 Iceland Summer Workshop. We had some stunning light and dramatic weather during our travels and some amazing images were produced by all participants. During our travel one of the many places we visited was the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. Jökulsárlón is one of my favourite places in the world for landscape photography and I have written before extensively on the amazing landscape found in this area of Iceland. I never tire of returning to this glacial lagoon and always look forward to the expression on people’s faces on their first visit to this wondrous location. This photograph was one of many we took as we wandered the shores of the lagoon at 2:30am. The midnight sun was rising and provided us with some wonderful alpine glow on the Vatnajökull ice cap in the distance.I now have a couple of days to rest and catch up on email before Daniel and I head to Longyearyben and the Svalbard Archipeligo where we will board M.S Origo with a dozen other photographers to spend two weeks photographing Polar Bears and other wildlife. Before we leave for Longyearbyen I am hoping to take the opportunity to squeeze in some aerial photography here in Iceland. I have wanted to photograph the glacial river deltas and goethermal Landmannalaugar areas from the air since my first visit to Iceland and with a little luck the weather will be clear enough tomorrow to fly.
