ICELAND – The land of Ice and Fire and the land where Heaven Meets the Earth…

Iceland is a Country  where Heaven meets the Earth. On March, this year,  I discovered  why  nature lovers and especially landscape photographers travel to the island of Iceland. Iceland  is magic. It is full with amazing and astonishing variety of  landscapes, a paradise for every photographer.  I had the chance to visit the island  and travel around for ten days and I was amazed with the beauty of the scenery. Our journey to this magical paradise  started form Reykjavik to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Snaefellsnes Peninsula offers stunning landscapes which captured the imagination of people all over the world. Black church of Budir, the villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar and the famous mountain of Kirkufell some of the places you have to place on your places to see list at Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Living Snaefellsnes Peninsula and following the Ring Road we travel to  the famous Golden Circle near Reykjavik. It is the area that contains most tours and travel-related activities in Iceland since it is very close to Reykjavik and it is easily accessible. The three primary stops on the route are the Þingvellir national park, the Gullfoss waterfall,   Iceland’s most famous waterfall,  and the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.  

Living Golden circle  area we follow the Ring Road  1 to the Southeast of Iceland where we spend five days visiting places such as the charming village of VIK, the Village of Hofn and of course the famous Skaftafell national park.  Jökulsárlón  Ice lake at Vatnajökull National park and the ice black  beach are incredible  places to spend a few hours in the SouthEast area of Iceland. Also in the area are not to be missed picturesque  waterfalls such as the Seljalandsfoss and the Skogafoss.

We ended our dream journey visiting  Reykjanes peninsulaan area filled with geothermal sites, dramatic coastlines, landscapes and quaint, historic towns.

Below are some of the images of Icelandic scenery as I capture them  through  my Lens. Visit my  Iceland photo album  and enjoy more photos. I will continuously updating the album with new photos as I processed them. Iceland is a place I am definitely recommending to visit and is a place you will love and want to visit again and again. Some of the images are available as prints  on several media on my store at FineArtAmerica.
