A hellish midday in Vik, Iceland. We decided to go to the beach inspite of the ominous weather, to get some true winter shots. I guess one should be careful what one wishes for... What we got was a relentless hail/snow/whatever it was just hitting us from every direction possible. We stood there like penguins trying to remember why the hell we went out of the warm car when it struck us that you just NEVER see images of Vik in such conditions. The tiny frozen white spheres on the pitch-black beach were just surreal, and addded to the beautiful stacks of Reynisdrangar, this was a scene well worth the icy adventure!
If you'd like to experience and shoot these amazing sceneries, along with many other incredible icy landscapes, and do so under my dedicated guidance, you're welcome to join my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop
taking place January 2013. The workshop is co-guided by renowned local Icelandic mountaineer and pro photographer Skarphedinn Thrainsson, and it will bring you to the most amazing locations for landscape photography in south Iceland.
