I received an early Christmas present yesterday in the form of an email from Better Photography Magazine Australia in recognition of photographic excellence. I am pleased to report that the photograph I entered into the Better Photography Photograph of the year 2010  – “Abandoned Blue-Berg”  taken in Iceland earlier this year at the Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon has won a Silver award for excellence in landscape photography. This was a double award for me with the same photograph taking out Bronze in the International Aperture Awards a few weeks ago. A higher resolution version of this photograph is also available on my portfolio website at www.jholko.com in the Iceland portfolio. This photograph will also be part of my upcoming Iceland exhibition early 2011; which is going to open in Brighton Melbourne before touring the country.

    Congratulations! You pulled together nicely quite a few things in that photograph. I have strong memories of the beach at Jökulsárlón, especially after an ‘incident’ I had there recently. But what a place!

    Congratulations! Iceland is beautiful but still looks punishingly cold.
