To celebrate the one year anniversary of the eruption in Meradalir, the second eruption of the Fagradalsfjall volcano, I decided to create a timeline showing all the events which happened during this eruption just as I did for the Geldingadalir eruption.
The subject of this month's 'Behind the Shot' is a photograph which I named 'Saga' (translated: 'History'). I took this photograph during the Geldingadalir eruption in 2021 shortly after all but one crater shut down, which ended up growing into a massive mountain which is still there today.

Today I have something very special to share with you all, something I’m very proud of. The past three months I have been quietly and tirelessly working on my first photography book, which will be titled “New Earth”. It’s the result of a great passion for exploring nature and photography. As you might have guessed, the book is about the…
Finally. Finally, I got to experience an eruption and how?! Words fall short to describe how amazing this weekend has been. The wild ride started Friday evening when I arrived in Snæfellsnes, ready for a night of northern lights.
I recently spent some time documenting and exploring a few geothermal areas from an aerial perspective using a drone. This top-down perspective provides a unique look at the colourful world of Iceland's hot & festering earth. It can sometimes seem like the surface of a different planet.
Over the years I’ve been getting plenty of questions about Iceland and what people should visit. I started answering some of those questions in a series of journal entries. In this journal entry, I answer another one of those questions: “What are my top 5 must-photograph locations in Iceland?”.
