Although I have been to Iceland ten times over the last five years, my 11thtrip showed me how little did I have seen. This month I had the unique opportunity of shooting from a helicopter, not only it was an eye opening experience, but the weather was so amazing that we where able to fly over every single glacier and land in places that most of the times are covered in clouds and storms.
Since my first trip I dreamt of being on Hekla’s crater, Iceland’s most active volcano, to walk on top of Vatnajokull, Europe’s biggest ice cap, to soar over the ever-cascading stairs of ice of Svínafellsjökulland to glide among the color-studded, windswept rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar.
We explored every corner of the Iceland, and each mile flown yielded another discovery. For a brief period of time, Iceland became my playground, my field of dreams and a photo-challenge beyond compare. Try shooting panoramas flying at 150mph.
If I were passionate about this land, now I am in love with it. This is not a country; this is a planet, a planet in some other universe that we are ale to visit from time to time.
