OCTOBER PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MONTH: OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE

Without doubt one of the most otherworldly and alien locations I have ever had the pleasure to visit and photograph is Hveravellir in Iceland. I first became fascinated with this remote area many years ago when I saw a photograph of the iridescent blue geothermal pool that lies in the middle of the barren Icelandic […]

RETAIL THERAPY – PHOTOGRAPHER STYLE
