When rain falls over the mountains.

Where rivers collide.
Soft waves form as the wind sweeps over the surface, and endless sediment swirls beneath. Parting clouds cast down light, illuminating the glacial streams in a burst of sublime natural hues.
A short tale for @icelandair.

The snow crater.
Ice cold temperatures gripped this frozen volcanic world today. Hovering around the glaciers with @nordurflug, we were able to peer down on some pretty insane natural formations.

Locked up in mountain snow, far away from civilization.

Immersed in Greenland's arctic elements with @66north.
Freezing temperatures made it a challenge to shoot out there, but no amount of frozen limbs could stop me from getting to the edge of the ice fjord after a long and windy solo hike through the snow. On the flip side, today marks the first day of the summer, and after a couple of weeks of hard work preparing at home, I'm feeling properly equipped and excited for the adventures of this coming season 🤙🏼

Watching over the @volcanohuts high up in the tree line.
Doesn't take long to miss these foxes, I'm always eager to head out to the highlands and see what they're upto.
With the snow soon melting away, they'll retreat to the mountains and most likely return with some little cubs 🐕

Ice kingdom.
The birds give a true sense of scale out there.
This evening we're wrapping up the applications for our Labyrinth Workshop, set for June this year in the Icelandic highlands. If you'd like to check out the adventure details and application form, the link is in my bio.
Stoked for it 🤙🏼

When the ridge line catches light.
Pushing through the winter ice, @bensimonrehn and I had no idea what we'd find out here. The untouched snow covered the entire landscape, creating some insane contrast in the contours of the mountains.
It really feels like a different world out there 🤘🏼

Puffins on the run.
Our labyrinth workshop seats are fast filling up for this coming June, travelling alongside myself, @donalboyd & @brokensundowns.
We've got some crazy things planned out for the highlands with creative shoots, cabin life, and mountainous views each day.
If you'd like to check out the adventure details and application form, the link is over in my bio.
There's three days left to apply ✌🏼

Out to sea.
It can take quite a long time for the ice to make it from the glacier to the coast, floating through the fjord in a state of continual change and deterioration.
Stoked to see this image on the cover of my pals @talostalostalos debut album.
Rad tunes!

Where the river divides.
Forever forming new pathways throughout the valley floor, I'd never realised the power of these glacial rivers until I began to notice how fast they can shift. Day after day they continue to change, adapting to the conditions of the landscape.

Whiter times with @andreamaack.
When the snow hits, fog engulfs the mountain peaks and distant land becomes invisible.
All that's left is the space surrounding you, the deeper textures of the landscape and the stark beauty of winter.

B E N J A M I N (@benjaminhardman)

Frozen.
An early morning hike in the Icelandic mountains can grant some pretty wild views. On our upcoming Labyrinth workshop this June, we'll catch visuals over these areas in their opposite summer form, with midnight sun glowing over the landscape.
Head to the link in my bio to find all the details on this adventure and how to apply 🤙🏼

Midnight silence with @66north.
These quiet summer evenings will soon return here in Iceland.

B E N J A M I N (@benjaminhardman)

The freeze.
Driving alongside one of my favourite crater lakes in our @isak4x4iceland defender, I couldn't help but gain an aerial view as the light reflected off of the snow.
The contrast from the summer is truly extreme.

Labyrinth // Photography Workshop.
With summer on its way I'm stoked announce two back to back photography workshops this coming June, hosted by myself, @donalboyd, and @brokensundowns.
After discovering an insane location in the fall last year, Donal and I have been inspired to create an adventure surrounded by this wild landscape. Based solely in the highlands amidst endless daylight in our double defender squad, we will guide you through the craft of photography both out in the field and in our mountain cabins throughout the trip.
All of the information on this adventure can be found via the link in my bio.
Psyched for this 🤙🏼

Last days of snow.
Pushing through the highlands we traversed amidst a landscape we'd known so well from the summer months. Once covered in thick snow however, the visual transformation was truly remarkable. After such a rad mission to make it out there, I've come home with a completely new perspective on this part of the highlands.
