Portraits of Mountains

A study in texture.

Mountains up close in the southcentral Highlands of Iceland. I like to think of these images as ‘head shots.’

    Rajan – they are all very good. I can’t pick a favorite because they all strike different chords.

    Hi Rajan: I very much like the third one, with a bit less drama than the first, but a wonderful repeating pattern; it’s visually soothing to my eyes. On the other hand, the complementary colors in the first (and to a lesser extent in the second) are superb. I hope the Icelandic tourist dept is aware of your photos :). They really make one want to hop on the next flight and visit. All the best!ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Bob. It is my hope that the Icelandic tourist board actually scales down tourism. The increase in visitors in the last couple of years is unsustainable and is damaging for the fragile ecosystem of the island.ReplyCancel

    Oh, man, all of these are outstanding! Those gullies with their waterfalls just barely anchor the abstraction in the real world on Mógilshöfdar. And the texture and color in Norðurnámur is amazing.ReplyCancel

      Jackson – Thank you. Indeed, these areas of the Highlands are an entirely different planet. Every time I go there I ‘see’ new things.ReplyCancel
