Chasing the light on a landscape photography road trip in Iceland. Hidden waterfalls, ice caves, glaciers and black volcanic sand beaches. What could possibly be better?!
The main purpose of the trip was to produce a new print collection for my photography print shop, all of which are now available. In this gallery you will also find a number of commercial images produced for the adventure travel company that I teamed up with, who made the packed itinerary possible!
Iceland won me over instantly. Within 8 hours of arriving, the northern lights were dancing over Grotta Island Lighthouse on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula, a few km outside Reykjavik.
After this, it was onwards to explore the world famous ‘Golden Circle’ (Thingvellir National Park, Geysir and Gulfoss Waterfall). The hype is absolutely justified! The rest of the trip was spent hiking and photographing some of South Iceland’s most iconic locations; 60m tall Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks at Vik, Svartifoss (meaning black waterfall) in Skaftafell National Park and of course Jokulsarlon Beach and Jokusarlon Lagoon.
A curated selection of Iceland prints are available in Matthew's photography print shop, but if you can't see the image you are after then just get in touch!
