Iceland Roads

Travelling around northern Iceland was a challenge photographically. Not because there wasn’t anything to shoot, quite the opposite, there was too much to shoot. Doing the landscapes justice and creating images that weren’t the same as millions of others was difficult.

While I was shooting landscapes I found myself drawn to the roads. They seemed to be one of the few things that seemed to add scale and a sense of drama to the shots. I ended up shooting hundreds of road shots. The black winding paths leading into these vast and dramatic landscapes seemed to anchor the shot perfectly, especially after a mono treatment. The contrast between natural and man made, the hard surfaces mirroring the often harsh vistas…This shot gives me the feeling I had when I was there.
