Chaotic peaks in the high mountains of the east.
There's still some signs of snow up there, but it's quickly fading as summer sets in 🤘🏼

Misty summer mornings.
In other news, today is the last day apply for my upcoming photo workshop titled 'Odyssey' alongside my good pal @fursty this July.
We'll be heading into the highlands for a week of solid shooting and exploring.
All of the info can be found on my website via the link in my bio ✌🏼

A night under rainy skies at @fosshotel.
There's something calming about falling asleep to the sound of the rain and wind rushing past from the North Atlantic coastline. Sometimes powerful, sometimes eerily calm, the weather will forever make this country a truly interesting place to be.

One of the biggest icebergs I've witnessed.
Comprehending the scale of such a massive chunk of ice can be a challenge from the air, but when you float up close in boat afterwards, the sheer size is revealed. Definitely a big one.

In balance.
Harsh weather and seasonal shifts in climate are constantly transforming the high mountain landscape. Despite this, a rock somehow remains standing perfectly upright at the edge of the cliff face, looking exactly like a little human when seen from the ground.

Vast wilderness surrounds the glacier.
Volcanic ash and rock from countless eruptions span way into the distance. Whilst this country is rather small, standing out here will make it feel endless.

o d y s s e y.
With the summer approaching, I'm stoked to announce a new photography workshop with my good pal @fursty, set within the Icelandic highlands for this coming July. Throughout a week of exploring, we'll be sharing all of our insight into the world photography, whilst adventuring under the midnight sun.

Adventure awaits 🤙🏼

Rising through the mist.
Heavy winds push the cloud over the peaks as land and sky become one.
Watching these scenes unfold can really put you in a trance.

Gloomy evenings in the mountains.

Under glistening moonlight, the ice stands motionless on the shoreline.
The sounds of rolling waves fill your ears, darkness takes hold.

The cave sings.
Immersed within the damp cave walls, an echo of falling water fills the space.
My partner @brokensundowns and I had the pleasure of shooting in the highlands with two highly talented visual artists @dariaendresen and @nihilfr this week. Their works and creations leave me speachless and endlessly inspired.
From behind the cave falls, I captured this image of Daria wearing Amy's white cloak. This cave has some of the most pure soft light I've found in the highlands, it is such a special place.

First light bounces off of the glacial ice, shining down over the mountain face.
Dawn had hit the land.

Endless exploration.
Yesterday I travelled deep into this valley, a place I'd never been. Tucked behind a glacial floodplain, the canyon appeared out of nowhere and I was able to get this shot.
With heavy rain washing away the last signs of winter, the colours were exploding out from all directions.
A tale for @icelandair.

Early summer textures in the high mountains.
The ice remains for now.

Fog covered the whole mountain range.
Looking up from the base, it seemed like the falls stood endlessly into the sky.
Within minutes the fog cleared and the whole landscape transitioned in appearance.

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.
