Seljalandsfoss, Iceland

This massive waterfall was amazing to watch and feel its mist spraying against my face.

Kviarjokulskambar, Iceland

A huge glacier can be seen wrapping its way around the mountains coming to rest against the lake.

Lake Jokurlson, Iceland

Driving along the road I had to slam on the breaks of the car in a hurry to see this lake in all its glory. I raced over the top of a nearby hill which put me in full view of this lake littered with floating icebergs broken apart from the far away glacier. It was about 11pm as I set the camera up in dead silence with the occasional ripple to be seen or heard from a curios seal.

Landmannalaugar, Iceland

Flowing lava and mighty torrents helped carve out this amazing landscape. The earth had many different textures and colours which made many interesting photographs in all directions.

Gallery item

South Coast, Iceland

I found the visual layout of this image very intriguing which gave me an appeal to photograph it. I still find it unusual as to how the waterfall appears to flow out of nowhere. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Velvia ISO 100, centre filter, .9ND filter, f45 @2 seconds. Limited Edition: 300

Fjadrargljufur, Iceland

Southern Iceland

Images like this stir my imagination as to who may have lived here and what life may have been like back then. It is left to the imagination as to what sort of ‘character’ would have been living here managing the land through long hard winters.

Gallery item

Myrdalsjokull, Iceland

Skagsanden Beach, Norway

Its hard to describe the beauty of seeing a snow covered beach for the first time. The moods in weather passing through this landscape were incredible. One moment the sky looked warm and inviting followed minutes later with black snow clouds putting fear into all things living. I stood here setting up my camera coaching my frozen hands into loading a new roll of film before the menacing snow storm would white out the entire place. Fuji Velvia, ND filter, f22 @ 4 seconds.

A, Norway

From one town to another on Lofoten Island crated new and exciting photographic opportunities. This place was no exception. I can remember crawling over ice covered rocks trying to find a suitable position to photograph this town. I liked the warm light caused by a weak winters sun diffused by dusty snow clouds passing over the village. Keeping snow off the camera also proved tricky. I was very pleased with this almost 'silent' feeling image. Fuji Velvia, f22 @ 15 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Reine, Norway

This was the village I chose to stay in for my trip to Lofoten Island. I was determined to photograph this village under the most demanding weather conditions. Setting up for this image was arguably the coldest place on the island being exposed to freezing temperatures, snow and sleet ripping across the fjords. It took four attempts at setting the camera up in between freezing snow storms which would make the whole town disappear under a blanket of cloud. Fuji velvia, ND filter, f22 @ 3 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Vikten, Norway

The greatest fear getting to this spot was breaking my ankles as I scrambled my way across the snow covered rocks beside the ocean. A wild snow storm had just passed over leaving a crimson coloured sky above the small township of Vikten.


Gallery item

Flakstad, Norway

It had been raining heavily with the fjords bleeding water down the steep slopes cutting its way through the sandy beach out to sea. A dusting of snow had also been scattered across the beach. The sun was setting early in the afternoon displaying its arctic glow across the sky as darkness set in.

Flakstad, Norway

Ice could be heard cracking under my feet as I stepped out across the waters edge composing this image. I was standing under a blanket of 'cold' nestled between the surrounding mountains as the soft winters sun gently added an invisible warmth to this landscape.

Gasadalur, Faroe Islands

We arrived on the Faroe Islands, with applause from the other passengers on the plane, (the landing strip is between two fjords, and is a big deal to have a good landing due to the strong winds). We traveled quite literally five minutes in the car to find this beautiful town nestled at the base of a fjord adjacent to a majestic waterfall cascading over the cliff into the Atlantic Ocean. What a welcome to this beautiful country!


Gallery item

Kalsoy, Faroe Islands

What a reward to find this waiting for my girlfriend Morgan and I after an adventurous walk! Nestled on the Island of Kalsoy, we just enjoyed the amazement at feeling like we were alone on this beautiful island. The Faroe Islands are an archipelago in between Iceland and Norway. The islands are either linked by bridge or the most incredible tunnels I've ever seen!


Gallery item

Godafoss, Iceland

I spent hours here, unable to tear myself away! I was mesmerised by such an intriguing waterfall. The conditions were harsh but wonderful to enjoy such a view with a white winter feel but during Autumn. I'm lucky with my timing as I have no doubt it would have been a frozen waterfall over the coming week!


Gallery item

Funningur Church, Faroe Ilands

I wish the day was as nice as it looks in the photograph! The wind was ripping through me to get this shot, but it's just magic with the show that the clouds performed! Funningur Church is nestled in a beautiful town literally at the foothill of the biggest fjord we got to drive down!


Gallery item

Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

My favourite shot from this trip to Iceland. We spent some time just taking in the amazing view while I was capturing this. The girls were entertained by some of Iceland's horses, greedily eating apples fed to them in a nearby paddock. How do you sum a shot like this with any other words but beautiful, remote and breathtaking?


Gallery item

Windhelm Island, Faroe Islands

These amazing islands are your first glimpse of the Faroe Islands through the clouds flying toward the airport. On our way to Gasudalar, we stopped to just take it all in, the remoteness of where we were, the road less travelled by most and just how beutiful this country turned out to be.
