Sheep guard the tanks

I always thought there were interesting visual juxtapositions in Iceland. I never actually found out if these are water or fuel tanks, but it was funny to see the iconic Icelandic sheep keeping watch over me as I photographed the tanks.

The ring road shone in gold

There is one major two lane highway all around Iceland –the Ring Road. This shot was taken in the extreme North of Iceland with a 600mm supertele of a lonely car making its way around the mountains at sunrise – at 2am!

Lenticular UFOs

While I totally botched the exposure on these frames, I found this pair of lenticular clouds floating above us in a fjord in northern Iceland almost eerie – as if they were UFOs. They apppeared and disappeared in a matter of minutes.

Meteor crater at Kerið

This crater was created thousands of years ago at Kerið. My friend Stefan Águstsson is setting up our first attempt at a Quicktime VR panoramic movie.

Fog decending upon the sea

Iceland is known for its wild swings in weather. Just a little while before it was sunny, and then this bank of fog started rolling in down off the mountains towards the sea. The smooth stones you see here are actually the result of thousands of years of tidal action.
