Last week I traveled to Iceland with some of my dearest photografriends, and we had an incredible time. We stayed in Selfoss for the first part of the week, then made our way to Reykjavik – in a white out blizzard (yikes) – for the second half of the week. Needless to say, I took roughly eleventy billion photographs, so I’m going to break them up into a couple of different posts. First, the landscapes and next week, the portraits.
There is a lot of hype around Iceland – particularly in the photography community – but I have to say, it’s all true. It really is as gorgeous and wild as it’s made out to be. There were so many moments last week when I just looked around in awe and wondered… how is this real life? Wild waves on black sand beaches, rainbows arching over massive waterfalls, turquoise geysers bubbling up from the earth, horses dotting the hillside beneath volcanoes, and the northern lights shining green against a backdrop of stars. Seeing the northern lights was truly one of the best moments of my life.
Here’s a peek into my adventure.
