Anyone know how to pronounce Hallgrimskirkja? 🤣 It took me three trips to Reykjavik to actually go to the top of the big church. I’m more into random funny adventures when travelling, so normal sightseeing isn’t my best skill 😬, but it turns out this view is not be missed. Reykjavik from the sky is so beautiful and super cute cause it looks like one of those miniature towns that’s too perfect to be true. Swipe to see! @icelandnatural#IcelandNaturally *hosted
✈🇮🇸___ L'altra volta vi ho mostrato la parte superiore della cascata, quella che si può vedere da vicino percorrendo un sentiero che la costeggia (a sinistra, nella foto, potete vedere il punto da cui avevo scattato la foto precedente). D'inverno, con la neve ed il terreno ghiacciato, quel sentiero non è percorribile perché non sarebbe sicuro. Così come non si possono fare altre cose che vi dirò man mano. Ecco perché penso che il periodo migliore per visitare l'Islanda come prima volta sia ottobre/novembre. Dopo la prima volta poi si può anche pensare di tornarci d'inverno per vederla con la neve e pregare che non ci cada il naso per il freddo 😍😂 ⠀
Intanto vi lascio la foto in cui si vede tutta la maestosità della Gullfoss, niente male no? ⠀
🇬🇧___ Last time I showed you the upper part of the waterfall, the one you can see up close along a path that skirts it (on the left, in the photo, you can see the point from which I took the previous photo). In winter, with snow and in frozen ground, that path is not passable because it would not be safe. That's why I think the best time to visit Iceland as a first time is October / November. Meanwhile, this is the photo where you can see all the majesty of the Gullfoss, not bad right?⠀
The importance of being yourself, specially in landscape photography! With @oli.szoke / "Living in Stuttgart, Germany, has one big advantage: Reaching the German or Austrian alps within 2 hours by car! This area certainly motivated me to go outdoors and inspired me to dive deeper into photography. As my passion for photography grew, I began to experiment with new angles, perspectives and hiking routines... As a result, one day I found myself at the top of Pico do Arieiro, one of the highest mountains in Madeira. The effort and the fatigue to witness the sunrise up there were significant. Yet, the experience was totally worth it. At that moment, the landscape photographer within me was born.
Since then, I went on photo trips almost every weekend in order to keep growing as an artist. Nowadays I work as a Director of Photography in Film and my aim is to put spirit into my photos, to tell a story and to evoke a mood or feeling.
I try to always keep my goal in mind and remember why I am a landscape photographer, a creator of visual art and adventurer. Exploring nature and finding quiet places full of beauty and without tourists is the best. The most important thing I need is my creativity, and of course my camera. There is also perseverance and motivation though, because hiking with a backpack full of camera gear, food and warm clothes isn’t always easy. As a landscape photographer, you need to learn how to go about a couple of inconvenient circumstances and step out of your comfort zone sometimes to achieve that stunning photo, taken from a surprising perspective and having this magical touch after editing: Dreaminess, this is the feeling I want to convey.
At the end, I guess it’s the most important that you have the right motivation for what you are doing, and for me this always lays in oneself. Finding inspiration elsewhere is fine, but always apply your talent, your personal creativity, your fascination for nature and your adventurous mindset, whether it’s about traveling to places, shooting from certain angles or about editing the photo to give it that extra dimension!” You can find @oli.szoke's original story visiting the link in the bio! A must read!

Do you ever have this feeling like the adventure is just about to happen?... Tingling in your feet and fingers... Overtaking excitement? That's how we feel looking out from this porthole 👀 Like we are about to arrive in a special place...

Perfectly timed shot of the Strokkur Geysir in sequence, Strokkur is found in the Geysir Geothermal Area and it is the greatest active geyser on site .
Strokkur erupts more regularly than Geysir ever did, blasting water to heights of around fifteen to twenty metres every five to ten minutes .

Been installing an exhibition at the @hornimanmuseumgardens this week that is all about visualising the climate crisis through photography of glaciers. It’s prompted me to look through my archive at a trip I took to Iceland. This is Jokularson Lagon where a glacier meets the sea... one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been.

Такой разный Ландманналойгер 💔.
Да, это слово читается примерно так, и к концу нашего безумного исландского путешествия я даже научилась его выговаривать (чего не скажешь про Эйяфьядльёккюдль).
Снова фото с телефона и снова никакой информативности. Только красота и воспоминания о нескончаемых высотных качелях на треке, о снежниках и безнадёжно промокших ботинках.
О том, что да как такие цвета вообще возможны? Да ну, фотошоп какой-то!.. И гейзеры, всюду гейзеры и фумаролы, и теплая вода, и пар (и ЭТОТ запах, да)).
Очень крутые, хоть и не высокие спуски и подъемы, толстенные слои снега, а это, на минуточку, середина июля. Скользкая грязь, топкий снег, мокрый дождь, мелкие камешки в мокрых и холодных ботинках. Ммм... Вкусняшка.
В общем, #ячутьнесдох#ещепойду .
