Iceland – Where nature rules over men

I love Iceland because it makes me surrender. I surrender to the elements of nature and try to be as present as I can. It’s such a paradox, because nature in Iceland is fierce, brutal and overwhelming but it somehow induces peace in my mind and body. The mystery of the landscape, the ever changing weather and the warm and humble Icelandic people are a fabulous mixture.

I have spent quite a few days in Snæfellsnes peninsula where the “dormant” volcano Snæfellsjökull that inspired Jules Verne to write the novel “Journey to the center of the earth“.

Snæfellsnes is not the first place tourists will visit when travelling to Iceland, but it’s becoming more popular. The peninsula with the vulcano is an amazing landscape scenery combined with the rapid changes of weather no day is alike.

I try to travel there once every year… These shots was from my short travel in september 2016. For the nerdie guys I used Fujifilm X-Pro2 and XF14mmF2.8 and XF35F1.4.

The vastness of the landscape always make me wonder if anyone ever seen it all… If you traveled to Iceland, what made the biggest impression on you?
