Lómagnúpur Mountain

Lómagnúpur Mountain is in the South East Iceland between Kirkjubæjarklaustur and Skaftafell National park. It is named after the Lómag – a bird that frequents the cliff face. Several huge landslides can be seen around the base of the mountain which is the highest cliff in Iceland. This photo was taken from the Skaftafell side in the middle of the sandur (Icelandic desert). At the time, it was so quiet that all I could hear was my mild tinnitus.

Landscape photography workshops

The incredible thing about taking photos of the Icelandic landscape is that the land is so diverse that it teaches you photography as you shoot. Imagine a fashion photography workshop where you go through several different lighting setups along with backgrounds that alter in colour, shape and aspect ratio. This would teach you a lot about fashion photography. Likewise, the changing light, colours and proportions of Iceland’s famous landscapes is a unique learning opportunity for any amateur enthusiast.
