ICELAND

Iceland Photo Tour / Workshop

Magical. Emerald ribbons dance above the heavens in a cosmic ballet, effortlessly engaged in an adagio that evokes wonder and amazement.  Black volcanic sand beaches line the shoreline that contrast heavily against the frosted waves that extend their touch to reach out and lay their gifts upon the waters edge.  Beautifully sculpted turquoise remnants of nearby icebergs adorn the beaches here.  In a land with practically 10,000 waterfalls – it’s difficult to not fall in love with this natural wonder of a land.  Take a moment and step behind one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, Seljalandsfoss, and experience the rush of every photographer’s dream – capturing moments unlike anything you’ve yet experienced!

Magical Photo Tour Through Surreal Landscapes 

Along the countryside, draw close enough to a noble breed, full of spirit and life – the Icelandic Horse – finding their heritage dating back to the Vikings who settled here centuries before.  Although smaller in stature, their strength is every bit a further reflection of this island wonder known as Iceland.  The landscape is embellished with geysers and glaciers, basalt pillars rising from the ocean, and fields of lava rock and volcanoes rising on the horizon.

 

Join us on this photo tour as we gaze into the raw beauty of Iceland’s natural wonders painted on the landscapes, photograph these moments that reveal moments few get to experience, unwind and relax in the hot springs that have rejuvenating qualities and interact with some of the most enjoyable people on earth.
