Aurora Skies Over The Jökulsárlón Bridge
I'm apparently dreaming of Iceland just a little more… On this final night before flying out, I was lucky enough to be in Jökulsárlón for a solar storm that resulted in some great Aurora activity.

I may be a nature photographer at heart but there was something about the angles of the glowing streams of green in the sky over the bridge that really caught my attention...

Gullfoss Square
The mighty Hvítá river flows over rugged terrain in Iceland creating an enormous set of waterfalls known as Gullfoss.  I can't speak for what it looks like in the summer but this view was certainly impressive right after a new snowfall!

No, I'm not in Iceland now but I am dreaming of another trip...

Spinning Wool Under The Glacier
In a nice surprise while I was in Iceland, I ran into a group on my ice cave tour where the group leader entertained his group by "spinning wool" under the glacier.  It was a real treat and my first clue that it was coming (funny enough) came from my spotting a wire whisk sticking out of his backpack. 

I was already excited about the coming ice cave tour.  And while I'd seen my fair share of this wool spinning technique where you burn some steel wool inside a wire whisk and spin it, seeing it inside an ice cave was something else!  All those reflections of the sparks on the icy walls were indeed a sight to see...

There is a lot more to this post...   see the rest of the backstory, how I got the shot, and get free wallpaper from www.coloradocaptures.com/spinning-wool-under-glacier.

Arctic Morning Ice Melt

I heard stories about how addictive it was to shoot the ice on the beaches in Jökulsárlón, Iceland.  Between the beauty of the glowing sunrise colors appearing through clear and blue glacial ice and the excitement of the crashing waves, it was a thrill like no other.

In planning my trip, I gave myself time to return to the area after taking a workshop from +Tony Prower (highly recommended, by the way).  This proved to be a really good move because it taught me about the location and the technique before I set out to use them both on my own...

Iceland Aurora Beach Panorama
Over a two-week period, I was really happy that I got to see pretty much all of the sights in Iceland I wanted to see.  But even though I got to see some Aurora on my first night on the island, I still craved for more before I had to leave.

Arctic storms and generally cloudy skies made night photography a bit of a challenge at times.  So with just hours to go before I needed to head back to Reykjavik for my flight back home, I saw a prediction for clearing skies on the southeastern coast and that was all I needed...

Can you see the ice chunks that have a green glow?  :-)

Deeper Into The Icy Abyss

I noticed pretty early that the images taken inside the ice caves often looked pretty flat.  It was difficult to get much of  a sense of depth and scale by looking directly at the ice - even if the textures were really interesting to see with my own eyes.

So in this image, I was especially drawn to the converging lines of the tunnel leading the eye to the corner where people in the distance were helping to provide a sense of scale.  And in black & white, the textures of the ice seem to take on a life of their own.

This image was captured from the ice caves under Vatnajokull Glacier in Iceland from my visit back in March, 2014.  This is the 2nd of 2 b/w images I'm able to post as part of my improvised  #5dayblackandwhitechallenge  - invited by +Tony Lazzari.  On the b/w challenge, is there anyone left that hasn't participated that would like to?  I'd be happy to nominate you...  :-)

Waterfall Wonderland - Bruarfoss, Iceland

In a world of overwhelming beauty, I used what I saw with my eyes and imagined what I could create in my mind.  All those waterfalls just made my job a lot easier.

It was fun trying to imagine the long exposures turning the fast moving water into smooth white waterfalls and silky smooth flows of light blue  water.  It was even more rewarding being able to watch that vision come to life one piece at a time...

Iceland's Glacial Underworld

On my trip to Iceland, I found that my ice cave tours under the 
Vatnajökull Glacier were so impressive, I knew I couldn't do them justice with my pictures.  Oh but I can sure try…

I loved every minute I was down there and this was no exception.  I listened close to our guide and when he said we could move ahead and cross the 2nd footbridge, I proceeded quickly across to the other side.  This gave me a great opportunity to shoot looking back toward people in our group near the entrance to the cave and me on the right, ready to explore further and deeper into the cave...

Glacial Ice Succumbing To The Sea

At the end of a life of thousands of years on Europe's largest icecap, glacial ice chunks spend their final days wrestling with the surf of the cold North Atlantic. It was impressive seeing all the ice chunks lined up on the black sand beach making one final stand against the forces of nature.

They put up a good fight against the never-ending onslaught of waves, but even with Iceland's colder temperatures, I knew they wouldn't last long...

Goðafoss Grand Scale

Before heading up to Iceland, I knew I wanted to make the most of my visit to the big falls of Goðafoss (pronounced goathafoss). They're so immense that they really need something to give them a sense of scale. I had seen a few images that showed off this little perch so I just kept it in-mind and hoped I could get there safely.

I'll admit this was a challenge with the new snow as I couldn't easily tell the difference between what was safe and what wasn't. Without fences or signs, it was entirely possible to stand on new snow that wasn't stable and to find that out the hard way - falling right over the edge. Adding to the excitement, pieces of snow were regularly breaking away from the edge on their own, falling down into the abyss below...
