iceland V.

on our way to Kiðagil in Northeast Iceland - where we were going to spend the fourth night of our journey - we drove through an endless and barren volcanic desert and stopped eventually by the geothermal area of Hverarondor Hverir - in the Mývatn region. I had never experienced anything like it before: the various colours of the ground went from red to turquoise because of the sulphur and the smoke radiating from the fumaroles gave the landscape a completely surreal look. despite the strong smell of sulphur we spent a long time there taking photographs: below are some of mine.
4th selection of my photographs from Iceland:
Nikon FM - Kodak Ektar 100
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 400H
Hverarondor Hverir is certainly among the most impressive places I have seen in Iceland - even though it hadn't been the only geothermal area we visited when we were there. I will share more photographs of other geothermal areas and there will be plenty more on the coffee table book that Jacopo and I are working on together!
P.S. remember to visit my website and my Flickr from time to time: you can find some of my photographs from Iceland there as well! and check Jacopo's Flickr too!

    2. it reminded me a very nice you can do, which is to grab a portion of soil, sift it and store it. later you can mix it with white glue and water and use it to paint the walls of house (it's important that the wall hasn't got other paint on it!). it's a truly beautiful idea, because then you can live in place that contains a bit of the various places you've pass through.
      maybe you already knew this technique, but it didn't hurt to tell you :-) me and t want to start storing soil too, so later we can paint our cosy place with our story.
