THIS IS ABOUT
ICELAND

A place where fire meets ice. Calm but windy, warm but at the same time cold. Welcome to one of the most unearthly, wonderful and unpredictable places in the world. Welcome to Iceland.

Every 15 minutes on Iceland gave me a totally new experience – different weather, a different landscape, different light and colour palette. Especially the last was amazing. An unusual connection of nature’s colours and volcanic landscape. Water, sky and snow. Unbelievable. Fantastic. Unforgettable.
