Ice-Land. The Ultimate test.


Kirkjufell Mountain & Waterfall (Grundarfjorour), Iceland. @RaquelRivas

Since I’ve known of the existence of Iceland, I have dreamt of it whilst looking at photos of the beautiful landscapes from great Photographers.


The extreme diversity of the landscape makes Iceland a heaven for all kind of photographers.

What the photos don’t show however was the brutal wind, the cold, the rain and the hail stones.

It is the ultimate test. Prepare for the worst weather scenario and you’ll not be depressed. Imagine your pictures in rain, thick fog, poor light and wind. If by fortune, sunshine blinks out, you’ll be the happiest photographer in the world.


It was a very good place for me to work on acceptance, as things didn’t go as I expected (Obviously) regardless of the money invested. Iceland is a must come back! In different seasons and pray for the best weather conditions.


Thank you @antoni0404 for your patience with me in the worst weather conditions we have endured so far.
