Hedinsfjördur, Iceland by Frank Hoogeboom

I've been photographing landscapes for a long time and what I start to find truly remarkable is the fact that I seem to make my most precious images along the way, from one hotspot towards the other. Visits to these hotspots are preceded by careful planning and trying to be there at the right day and the right time of day, hoping for the best weather situations. This makes shooting images along the way without all these preparations even more special, as you don't know where you will end up and what the conditions will be. This truly can give exceptional and unexpected results which often times grow longer on you than the image you originally ventured out for.

This image was not different. We just drove out one of Iceland's many tunnels and saw this scene just before we were drawn into the next tunnel. Luckily there was a small parking area so that I could capture this wonderful scene. I was struck by the lovely light coming through the fjord and the snow capped mountains made a great background. This has become one of my favourite images from this trip.

Picked up photography in my teens, initially shooting only military aircraft. In more recent years I specialized into landscapes and a bit of architecture.
