Iceland has more than 30 active volcanos and the largest glacier in Europe. Although considered part of Europe, it actually sits on the plates of both Europes and North America’s Continental plates – hence the volcanos. This makes Iceland some of the newest land on the planet, with the island beginning to form around 250,000 years ago.

A population of less than 400,000, half of whom live in the capital city, Reykjavik. Its citizens are almost completely descended from the original Viking settlers, and their language remains close to the original.

Although the gulf stream and geothermal activity keep Iceland from normal arctic temperatures, the climate is harsh and the weather both unpredictable and rapidly changing.

It is also an incredible place for photography with such scenery that composing work can become overwhelming. I had the pleasure of shooting across southern Iceland in winter and I hope the galleries here help share that experience with you.
