Black Lava















I almost didn't know where to start when it came to editing my Iceland photographs. So I started with lava, as it is the foundation of this extraordinary country. With over 30 active volcano systems, Iceland's volcanoes have erupted over a third of the world's total lava output of the past 500 years. I spent many wonderful hours in surreal moss-covered lava fields and walking along peaceful black beaches that tell a more violent story of tectonic upheaval, creation, and destruction. This is truly an awe-inspiring place.

I am thrilled really. These clicks are too amazing and stunning. I must say this is the actual standard of Fine Art Photography. The shots itself are expressing that they are being clicked by a professional.


Beautiful clicks ! really.

These are absolutely beautiful. They radiate some calmness I have seldom seen. And I see you had similar weather at Jökulsárlon as I had last summer. ;) I loved the drizzel and the limited visibility.
