At this time of the year (end of May) in this area (Vik, Iceland) it is not getting really dark at night…

New on 500px : Vik Church by Kyraly by Kyraly

Came to Iceland to shoot with Iurie Belegurschi. First day was overcast and dull.

This shot was a challenge as it was constantly windy, making the lupines move.

New on 500px : Blue Hour by BrettNickeson by BrettNickeson

Back from Iceland! We had a fantastic time in the land of never ending summer light and came away with some great images. The conditions were often tough though, as the clouds only cooperated on a couple nights and we usually found ourselves socked in stratus, fog, or rain. Regardless, Iceland is an incredible country and a landscape photographer’s dream.

This image is a bit odd for me as many know that I typically don’t include man-made objects in my photos. But this scene of the church in Vik surrounded by an amazing lupine field was too good to pass up. Taken sometime around 2 a.m., we lucked out with zero wind and perfect conditions to shoot the wildflowers.

One of the most exciting experiences in Iceland was searching and finding that crashed airplane (1973 – nobody died in the accident). It sounds a little bit strange to me to say that, as there were so many great experiences in that amazing country.

It’s not only the crashed airplane itself but the place where it is, with nothing but volcanic sand around. Another thing it made it more interesting is that we thought being in the wrong way as it saw not visible until you are really close to it.


Uno de las experiencias más interesantes en Islandia fue visitar este avión accidentado en 1973 (sin víctimas). Me suena raro decir eso habiendo tantas cosas por hacer y por ver en Islandia, y todas ellas alucinantes 🙂

No era sólo el avión en sí, sino el lugar en que se encontraba, únicamente rodeado de arena negra volcánica hasta donde alcanza la vista. Algo que hizo muy interesante la visita es la sensación de no estar en el camino correcto ya que el avión no era visible hasta estar a escasos metros del mismo.
