Have you ever been to Iceland? The 103.000 square kilometers island with just a little more than 300.000 people living on it is my favorite place on earth to visit. I have been there three times and can’t get enough of the stunning nature. Hot springs, mud pots, steaming fumaroles, blue iceberg pieces on black beaches – Iceland is called the land of fire and ice for a reason!

One reason why I love this country so much is due to the fact that I am a photographer. I always carry tons of high quality equipment with me because I want to be prepared. A wide angle lens gives this iceberg a unique perspective:

You better have a telephoto lens with you if you want to capture some of those cute puffins:

A tripod and a grey filter are essential for long time exposures:
