Auroras Over Iceland

Hope this post isn’t too green for you, I got incredibly lucky had many night of amazing light shows.  Never realized how fast they move, and it was the thrill of a lifetime to finally get to see this wonder snake its way across the sky.  I shot a bunch of time-lapse stuff too, and will have some great videos to accompany this soon.

Breiðamerkursandur (Iceland’s Iciest Beach)

Breiðamerkursandur is the sandy shores on which icebergs from Jökulsárlón wash up on, and it is frigid!  Got in a few times to get the right angle on some ice, and after 5 minutes in it took 5 hour just for my feet to feel right again!  Nevertheless, a magical place where the light and landscape changes all the time.

Hope this view was worth it, shortly after an 80 mph wind gust decided to topple and shatter one of my cameras into half a dozen pieces…

the Wanderer

As mentioned in Dr. Wolf’s essay in my previous post, Caspar David Friedrich has been a big influence on my work lately.  I’ve been shooting a series of self-portraits (mostly) entitled “the Wanderer”, inspired by many of his Romantic landscapes, below is a slice from that series.  Apologies if you’ve seem some of these in my recent European posts, but I was of course exponentially inspired while roaming around Friedrich’s homeland.  Thanks to Magdalene, Wes and Tiffany in help in creating some of these.  Enjoy!
