    In my opinion, very few people can "move" viewers with their work, the way that you are doing. Its a true gift to be able to do that.

    Can I ask what lens/lenses you are using for these shots?

    I agree! I can't get over these pictures. I keep looking at them over and over, trying to soak them in. Seriously I want to be like you!

    ok slight thread hijack, but you did ask!

    Well... personally i would try and absorb as much inspiration about Iceland as possible, so that when you are there you will already have a feel for the place.
    Imo, this can help you to make decisions on what to include to capture images which show you are really 'feeling' the place around you and will therefore rub off on the people that view your landscape photos.

    A great source of inspiration from a superb female Icelandic photographer would be Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir's Flickr page. Take a good look... she has branched out into many different styles lately but is still an excellent landscaper (and also knits traditional Icelandic clothing :p).
    The next thing is personal taste but I would also listen to Sigur ros alot... maybe too far for some, but for inspiration you can't beat thier music... and also visuals like in the vid for


    Next.. your gear, if you can go wide.. 10mm or 14mm at the wide end if you can (also consider fisheye). If not 18mm will suffice and probably easer to obtain the next part if your under geared...

    Filters... Polerizer is a must... ND's useful (if your planning on the coastal shots especially)... graduated ND's (like the cookin P series) very useful.

    For shooting in general, i tend to look around at the views, when something looks great the first question i ask myself is 'right, what is the foreground?'
    Find something which you can use for forground compostion (an old house, a rock formation.. whatever) use the rule of thirds, find the composition and then shoot keeping the horizon either in the top third or lower third.. usually above f8.
    Underexpose a bit if needed... you can sort out the processing when your home.

    Another useful thing to know about Iceland is from june to august and sometimes beyond, it doesn't get dark at night, so ambient landscapes are still possible.

    Have fun!... if you have any further questions just ask.

    Great pictures as always Peanuts.

    Not too many people I look for when checking these forums, but you are one of them! Always appreciate your work.

    Between you and Big Mike another forum could be started =) Ironically enough we all live in Alberta.
