Fire & Ice
I have heard many photographers talking about the magic of Iceland over the years. As both a photographer and an editor, having seen some incredible images that other photographers have returned with, it was definitely on my ‘bucket list’ of places to visit.
Last month I made my first trip to this beautiful country and I freely admit that I was awestruck. I have visited many superb locations around the world but none had such a great influence on me. Until now!
Besides the extraordinary scenery, the vast waterfalls and the breathtaking beauty of the highlands, one thing that made a huge impression was the night we had whiskey on the rocks, but not just any rocks – these rocks being more than 3000 years old and originating at Jokulsarlon glacier. Never has whiskey tasted any better than that!
Flying back home to the UK was bittersweet, but I know I’ll be booking my next visit back to this magical place very soon.
