Photography: Vatnajökull Glacier's Ice Caves

Photography: Vatnajökull Glacier's Ice Caves

The East from North America is getting a pretty big snowstorm at the moment, so I thought about going through the same cold lines and featured the work from Mikael Buck and his stunning Glacier's Ice Caves from Vatnajökull, Iceland. Going through his project, it’s amazing with all the details and perspectives that makes you so stunned about this spectacular artifact from nature. Mikael Buck is a photographer currently based in London, UK. Focusing his work also on digital photography and advertising; Mikael's work from Iceland is absolutely stunning. Make sure to follow his work on Behance. Earlier this month I was fortunate enough to be commissioned to travel to the Vatnajökull National Park in southern Iceland to photograph the ice caves found underneath the Vatna glacier. Here are the results of what was a truly inspiring trip. The light bouncing off the ice in every direction and the amazing textures created where the ice mixed with volcanic ash were unlike anything I have ever seen before.  

Vindur: Icelandic Landscapes

Vindur: Icelandic Landscapes

Sigh, drones. They are pretty (very) pricey, fragile but they can give you the best vantage point of areas/perspectives that you can’t never ever be reached other than being riding a helicopter or flying like Superman. On the other hand, flying a drone in a very particular place and environment like Iceland; can really take your drone game to a whole new level. Let’s take a look at the work from Vadim Sherbakov and his aerial journey within the Icelandic Landscapes filled with waterfalls, valleys, mountains, landscapes, oceanic cliffs, old glacier, and many other magnificent wonders. As we are planning our trip to Iceland in less than a month, this is definitely inspiring and breathtaking. Vindur is a non-narrative short film shoot with drone in different parts of Iceland. Vindur means wind in Icelandic which is relevant to the way its shoot. So for 3 minutes you will get to enjoy amazing drone footage portraying Icelandic unbelievable landscapes. Beautiful waterfalls, endless valleys, unusual mountain ranges, out of this world landscapes, oceanic cliffs, old glacier, fantastic canyon and many other wonders that makes Iceland so unique and such a blast to shoot using DJI Phantom 3 professional.   More information: http://www.madebyvadim.com

Aerial Iceland

Aerial Iceland

We are finally letting go our temptation and we are planning our first trip to Iceland. This Icelandic Island located near the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean with a population a little low as about 330K to cover its whole island. This country is recently getting a lot more attention and visitors during the last few years. For those who doesn't know Iceland is volcanically and geologically still active which makes things a little scary and exciting at the same time. I'll make sure to take pictures and share it on Abduzeedo. By the meantime, let's follow Martinet Sarah's journey to Iceland with her breathtaking pictures taking from a plane with open windows. We can't help to be amazed by the landscape especially at this perspective that totally reminds me of a painting.

Jaw-Dropping Pictures of Iceland

My wife keeps telling me all the time how much she loves Iceland. I didn't know much about it besides the Aurora, but it seems that Iceland is an absolutely outstanding, beautiful country. Jaw-dropping level, really. These are just some examples of how good visiting Iceland might be. So now it's official, I really want to visit it with my wife. Of course that these pictures were taken by some really talented people who got an eye for beautiful spots. I really recommend you to visit their portfolios for more by clicking each picture, and I'm pretty sure you may even get to buy some prints. How wouldn't love getting some of these hanging in their wall? I know I would. My wife would die for it. Oh, and don't forget to watch the video at the end. It'll give you the goosebumps.
