More Snow..

Here are a few more snowscapes from my recent visit to Iceland.  From complete white out to the scene as the blizzard recedes, these pictures depict the harsh beauty of winter in Iceland.

  4. Think you can feel silence there

    April 21, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    • Thank you Lou, that’s exactly how it was! :-)

    • Thank you very much Mark. I was pleased with the way these pictures turned out. :-)

  6. That dynamic sky in the middle photo is compelling…and I’d love to see the first one printed large, in person.

    April 21, 2016 at 7:08 pm

    • Thank you Lynn. I fully intend to print that one and put it on my wall. The picture really is much better viewed large. :-)

  7. All special, but number one is ‘wow’ powerful. White blinding.

    April 21, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    • Thank you! I really appreciate your comment! :-)

    Stunning Adrian, the first one takes my breath away.

    • Thank you so much Lee! :-)

  10. More photos from the master of light and negative space. And once again, gorgeous, Adrian. I have really grown found of your series of “emptiness”.

    April 21, 2016 at 11:33 pm

    • Thank you ever so much Otto! I’m really glad you’re enjoying this series, I’ve certainly enjoyed putting the pictures together. As you know, I’ve posted many more traditional landscapes from Iceland but I really wanted to try and capture the wild and starkly beautiful empty landscapes that one finds in certain parts of the island. These are the places that really had the biggest impact on me.

  11. That middle photo is wonderful. They all are…in case you didn’t know. *wink*

    • Thank you so much! :-)

      April 22, 2016 at 9:08 am

  12. Didn’t know snow can look so beautiful – until I saw it through your lenses!

    April 22, 2016 at 4:50 am

    • What a lovely compliment! Thank you! :-)

      April 22, 2016 at 9:08 am

  13. They are amazing photographs… fascinated me. Thank you, with my love, nia

    • Thank you so much Nia! :-)

  14. Again a stunningly beautiful picture. I prefer taking pictures in the winter much because of the light and color tone, but also because of the lack of details/simplicity of the motive.

    April 23, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    • Thank you Tommy. I’ve with you there!

      April 24, 2016 at 6:43 pm

  15. These bleak and mimimalist landscapes are so powerful – I agree with others that there is a sense of silence. Just you, the camera and the shot. I’ve experienced that feeling in the mountains but my eye has not yet found this minimalism in the Alps.

    April 24, 2016 at 10:44 am

    • Thank you so much Andy! I can imagine mountain landscapes are a little more tricky when it comes to taking a minimalist approach. The flat, wide open spaces Ive found during the Icelandic winter provide plenty of opportunity.

      April 25, 2016 at 4:22 pm

  16. So very beautiful, Adrian….wow.

    April 24, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    • Thank you Scott! Yes it it! Iceland in winter is incredibly beautiful :-)
