Primal Icelandic landscape

Iceland is an landscape born of volcanic activity, and its primal quality comes through at every turn.  Over the centuries, though, moss and other vegetation has taken hold so the contrast between the sharp, craggy rocks and the verdant hillsides is a site to behold. 

Though my work has primarily evolved to shooting lifestyle imagery on location, there are times when pure landscape photography is simply irresistible.  This was one of those days.
