Winter At Tungnaá
Winter At Tungnaá

This country never ceases to amaze me. In 2017 I had the opportunity to make some brand-new aerial photographs. About half way through the flight we flew over this area - deep in the Icelandic highlands. My jaw dropped when the endless braided rivers appeared below us.

The Icelandic glacial rivers are quite impressive, even more so from the sky. The patterns, smooth shapes and colors are just so surreal. Sometimes it even looks like the surface of another planet.

Fjallabak
Fjallabak

This place is located north of Þórsmörk in the area of Fjallabak. I loved the low hanging clouds in combination with the black ash-covered scenery. The green patches of grass add for a freshness to an otherwise gloomy photograph.

Þjórsá river is a quite impressive glacial river in Iceland, even more so from the sky. The patterns, smooth shapes and colors are just so surreal. Sometimes it even looks like the surface of another planet.

Álftavatn
Álftavatn

When hiking the famous Laugavegurinn trail you will come upon this beautiful lake after your first hiking day. Álftavatn literally means swan-lake.

Snowy Tungnaá

Tungnaá river near Vatnajökull glacier showing off its crazy patterns with a pinch of snow in the early Autumn. This place always gets some of the very first snow of the season.⠀

Hidden Valley

Hidden behind Katla and Eyjafjallajökull you can find the hidden gem of Þórsmörk. Putting this place in your travel plans is a must according to me!⠀

It’s always fun to try and spot quirky or recognisable shapes in the patterns the rivers form - like this tiny little heart-shaped island.

Esja
Esja

A farm located at the foot of Esja, the famous mountain close to Reykjavík. I really loved the clouds above Esja on this day.

An aerial view over the road into the Þórsmörk valley. You can even see a few of the many river crossings on the way there.

Ice Lagoon

The magnificent ice lagoon shot straight down with a DJI Mavic Pro. The blue water you can find there is just beyond amazing.

This river in the Icelandic highlands is called Tungnaá. It's not the easiest of places to get to by car but fortunately it's much easier and for sure more interesting to go there by plane. By far one of the craziest aerial views of Iceland I've gotten so far.

Mars

Some of the patterns and colours you can see with a bird’s eye view, look like you’re looking at another planet. This could be an impression of what the planet Mars looks like when there would be water.

Sometimes you need a little bit of a different perspective to truly see what's beautiful about certain places. ⠀

This is an aerial photograph of the place where the brown/red water, coming from the nearby farmlands, merge with the glacial river.

A little bit of the summer highland green hiding under a fresh layer of snow. This shot was taken in the beginning of Autumn in 2017.
