When I started this blog in 2007, I didn’t imagine I will get to 1000 blog posts and that it would turn out to be such a major influence on what I do on a day to day basis. At the time, I was interested in photography, but the blog came about more from a love of travel. But the more I blogged, the more I wanted to take photography seriously and now it’s what I do. I’m not quite sure if I’ll do another 1000 posts, but for now I still really enjoy experimenting with my personal images and sharing them with those of you who read this. So here’s to a lot more!
To celebrate this, I have an A3+ signed print on beautiful archival paper of this image from Madagascar to give away to one person who comments on this post. It would be cool if you let me know in the comment which image from the blog is your favourite, but that’s not mandatory. I’ll draw a winner on April 16th.
As for today’s image, it’s a photograph of Fjallsárlón, a glacier lake at the bottom of Fjallsjökull (Jökull in Icelandic means glacier) in the South of Iceland. It’s very difficult to give you an idea of how big this glacier is, but the crevices at the bottom are as large as a 4-5 story building. The light that day was gorgeous, with lots of clouds that softened the light before it hit the glacier and reflected back into the surrounding area.
