    Two from Iceland, while waiting to go back!

    Finally we can travel again around Europe with not too much hassle, and I can't wait to go back to Iceland in September as my first international trip after Covid forced me to stay in Italy for pretty much all the second half of 2020! In the meantime, here are two favourite spots of mine in...

    Two icy images from Iceland

    These days, it is very popular to show the fire side of Iceland, for those lucky enough to be able to travel there to photograph the new volcano. Being hard for me to travel there now, I thought I’d show the icy side of it with a couple of images from my archives. 236 sec, f/11, Hasselblad...

    Reynisfjara, Iceland, near and far

    When I am working on the landscape, if the weather and the scene allows I love to experiment with different focal lengths, looking for compositions inside a composition. This is Reynisfjara, in Iceland, at sunrise on a stormy day: 4 seconds, Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and...

    Two Icelandic waterfalls

    Waterfalls are a constant presence in Iceland, they grace the landscape with their presence pretty much everywhere you look. Some are more iconic than others, and among the iconic ones Kirkjufellsfoss and Skogafoss are definitely high on the list. Here they are, photographed in winter...

    Two different moods at Reynisdrangar, Iceland

    I love going to Iceland in winter. The weather in Iceland is always such a leading character in the story and this is even truer in winter, as the images here prove (at least to me, that is). Reynisdrangar, in Iceland, is a very accessible location offering a wealth of different compositional...

    Two iconic Icelandic cityscapes +1

    While I mostly photograph natural landscapes, I also enjoy a lot working on cityscapes. In this post, I'll share with you three images of iconic man-made buildings, shot in Iceland during two different trips there. All images have been shot with Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 21mm with...

    Kirkjufjara, Iceland, in the mist

    One more image of Arnardrangur (not Kirkjufjara, sorry about the mistitle), Iceland, this time on a misty day. Taken the year after the last one I posted, this is a 362 seconds exposure shot with my Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you...

    Kirkjufjara, Iceland, in black & white

    Iceland's landscapes are very graphic & monochromatic in nature, with their black rocks & black sands covered by white snow & blue ice, and I love to portray them in B&W when the occasion arise. 51 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 45mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest...

    Seljalandsfoss at sunrise

    Seljalandsfoss is just an amazing place to photograph, especially at sunrise when nobody is there and you have the place all for yourself. It's not easy to keep your filters clean, but the results are worth the pain. 2 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and...

    Jokulsarlon at Sunrise

    The glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon is a classic spot in Iceland, for tourists and photographers alike. And for a reason: it is just amazing to see the multi-coloured icebergs slowly and majestically leaving the lagoon heading towards the sea, where they will dissolve forever. Hasselblad X1D...

    Vik's Spirit

    Nothing beats the stark beauty of Iceland in winter, and the expressive power of long exposures definitely helps in creating a special mood. Vik's Spirit, 323 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 45mm and Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you for...

    Black Church Aurora

    I just came back from Iceland, and I already can't wait to go back! Here's the Northern Lights over Budir's iconic black church, a shot from last March. 23 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad*X1D and Hasselblad XCD 21mm. Thank you for viewing, best regards Vieri

    4 minutes of Vestrahorn Sunrise

    After almost 8 months from my last visit, I am almost ready to go back to Iceland for about two weeks of photography there! Iceland is always beautiful, but in winter is truly amazing and I am very excited to be there again. Here's a shot from my last visit, taken at the amazing Vestrahorn...

    King Skogafoss, Iceland

    Skogafoss, here shown at sunrise, is one of the most majestic and impressive waterfalls I have ever seen and photographed. 8 seconds exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, my Hasselblad XCD 30mm and my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you for viewing, best regards Vieri

    Blue Ice, Iceland

    I love ice, and Jokulsarlon is a goldmine of inspiration, always different, always interesting. Sometimes you have very few, sparse ice diamonds, sometimes you have an abundance of shapes and masses to work with :) 3 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and...

    Sunset in Londrangar, Iceland

    Sunset at Londrangar, in Iceland. I simply love the winter light there, soft and beautiful, and I can't wait to be back in December! 16 seconds exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you for viewing, best regards Vieri

    A Vestrahorn sunrise

    Vestrahorn, in Iceland, is a truly amazing place. A classic, I know, but a classic I am never tired to photograph, like here on a very cold March sunrise. 13 seconds with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you for viewing, best regards...

    Seljalandsfoss, behind the waterfall

    I know it's a classic, but as all classics it's a classic for good reasons. Witnessing an amazing sunrise standing behind the waterfall of Seljalandsfoss, in Iceland, is exciting and almost overwhelming! No matter how classic it is, it is a sight to behold and an unforgettable experience. 8...
