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.
