I would have posted each day as planned but we were shooting for 18 hours a day and didn’t always have internet. This was one of my most enjoyable workshops ever. Below is a small sampling of some of the many highlights of the trip. Already excited to return next year teaching a joint workshop with John Paul Caponigro
Reykjanesvirkjun, geothermal power plant in the Southern Iceland.
Silica deposits create wild patterns at geothermal plant
Patterns from the deposits of minerals were incredible
Geothermal heat rising from vents
The ground was simply at bubbling array of color and steam
Hiking on the Vatnajokull Glacier was certainly a highlight
Going into an ice cave was pretty cool as well
It was more than pretty cool... It totally rocked....
There was more than landscape. There were great faces...
Vacant farm near Vatnajokull Glacier
Hiking on Vatnajokull Glacier was incredible. Black ice from all the ash.
Skogafoss Waterfall at sunset which was around 9PM
Still amazing light at 10PM
Black ice in the Glacier Lagoon
Taking a boat through the lagoon to the headwall of the glacier was certainly another highlight
At the headwall of the glacier we found this incredible blue iceberg
Lighting icebergs with flashlights at the Lagoon
Reds and blacks on the glacier
Bubbling mud at the moment it the bubble breaks
Cracked earth in Hverageroi
Siggy the best driver in the universe taking a smoke break
Moonrise at the Glacier Lagoon
Sunset at the Glacier Lagoon
The best highlight of the trip was climbing Eyjafjallajokull to the site of the eruption. At the based the water was filled with mineral deposits.
A small 3 kilometer climb and the group did great. At the base of the volcano the ice was beyond amazing
Mud on ash at the volcano
At the summit the rocks were hot and the colors were my favorite pallet
Molten lava at 700 degrees at the summit
Yes it was hot enough to cook and eat hot dogs at the summit
ding in the very place that I photographed last year exploding with lava
Realizing that it is still very hot... Burnt a hole through my shoe and my pants melted
These are but a small sampling of my images from an incredible week. My class put in long long hours and on one night we got back at 1 AM and every single person in the class stayed up in the lobby drinking a bit of vodka until 4 AM working on images. Thanks to Einar and Ragnar for all their hard work and thanks to all my students for inspiration and enjoyment.
Next workshop is with Greg Gorman and it too will be Amazing…
