We made it! The weekend is finally here and throughout the week I've been posting photos from my Iceland road trip last year. There are plenty of photos to come but I wanted to go big with some of my favorite shots—aka the ones that came out decent enough to share. 😂
I started off the week with a post of Dynjandi from a distance, so it was only fitting to end it with a close-up of this 100 meter massive waterfall to end our journey (Don't stop, believing! 🎶). I don't know if it was just me but I felt a bit of a rush seeing this up close. It definitely makes you feel all sorts of ways. Truly an amazing place!
#FridayFeature ! There's a chill in the air as autumn comes to the #USA . @manuel_hutama captured the changing leaves on a drive through Hope Valley in #California . Thanks for sharing using #bbctravel !
My photo is published on the National Geographic Japan photo book
It starts selling from 25th August
I had wanted to visit #Wien#Austria mostly to see Klimt’s work, but I didn’t expect the city to be so astonishingly beautiful. I’ve been walking around with my jaw dropped, stunned by the beautiful (#baroque ) edifices of #Vienna . It is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited. Wow.
No drone zone 🙅♂️
Scroll through my feed and you’ll find multiple aerial shots of Grand Prismatic Spring. Clearly I’m pretty obsessed with this technicolor thermal feature. Hard not to be right? Looks like it’s from another planet
I’m also pretty damn protective of special spots like this. It’s why you’ll always hear me mention (clear as day, front and center) that I did NOT take this with a drone. They’re prohibited in most national parks. And for good reason (check my previous posts for the specific reasons why).
I don’t mind sharing what I did to get a shot (paid for a photo flight over Yellowstone). Especially if it means that bit of honesty protects someone from thinking it’s cool to go against park regulations and fly a drone anyway. Just so they can get the same shot they saw on insta.
It’s also why I love following photographers (like @hello_mallory and so many others) on here who are committed to that same “code” of conduct. To be 💯% transparent about how they take shots, and to always encourage people to respect these awesome places.
This was shot with a polarized lens which gives the image a slight 3D effect. I didn't know this until later but 3D glasses work mainly through polarization, albeit to a much greater effect. Next time you are looking at your phone screen with polarized glasses you might notice that it looks 3D-esque.
