When I shot this I was getting blasted in the face with snow and ice trying my best to get something in focus ( I was using a manual focus 50mm lens). I was aiming to keep the Heli in the top of the frame and the subject in the bottom of the frame. When I got in the heli and went to clean off my lens I realized that most of the lens was glazed over with ice. I was bummed at first, but later noticed it created a kind of dreamy effect on the heli while keeping the subject sharp (I actually nailed the focus..for once 😊) In the end I thought it made for an interesting image…happy accident all around, I guess. What do you guys think? //

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet ☄☄☄
This is a special one. The day I fell in love with Iceland all over again. I learned to always trust Iceland to deliver on both weather AND location! The weather didn't look that promising earlier in the day and we almost gave up on getting anything just before sunset, when suddenly the whole freaking sky LIT UP. We drove around looking for a cool spot to find this neat little stream on the side of a dirt road just off the main road! THE MIDNIGHT SUN IN ALL ITS GLORY. It's when sunset meets sunrise in the summer in places north of the arctic circle and you get the golden hour for HOURS, literally. And when the conditions are right, it looks like this. Indescribable.
Side note: we found out that there was a dead sheep in the water after we finished shooting 😂😅
