Long Exposure

High lands


 For those that may be tuning in for the first time, I am Joe shutter: a blogger and photographer based in Iceland.

I pass on what I learn out here through my  tailor-made photo workshops and tutorials. They can be as long or as short as my clients need them to be, and I always go the extra ten miles (or ten hours) to get the shots and get off the beaten track wherever possible. 

If you are interested in a photo workshop/tutorial in Iceland, pleas contact me through my email ( joeshutter101@gmail.com ) or through my Instagram handle @joe_shutter .


So there I was, minding my own business one polite afternoon, when I get a spontaneous message from an Instagrammer with whom I had recently been speaking, @bensimonehn. It went something like this: Lets go somewhere cool, alright then!

And off we went: Before we knew it, we are up in the highlands at near freezing temperatures (its supposed to be summer) and negotiating flash hail storms.  So in between car breaks when we put some life back into our extremities, we grabbed some shots until it got too dark. Here are the results of that escapade

Between a Fall and a Plane Fall

Like everything else in Iceland, it doesn't matter how many times you visit these magical spots, they are never the same twice. That said, this was my umpteenth time at Skogarfoss, we are delighted with the low sun behind the cliff, a winter time treat.

The crashed DC-3 at Sólheimasandur is a popular spot too, slightly further along the road. The DC-3 crashed during WWII and everybody on bard survived. Now its a great shoot location.

A photo stop on the road like no other.
