Documenting “Wetlands of Iceland” │ Iceland Photo Gallery

Documenting Iceland

by: Rafn Sig,-

Ég ( Rafn Sigurbjörnsson ) og góður vinur minn Ellert Grétarsson Ljósmyndari fórum djúpt inn á hálendið í gær til þess að ljósmynda “Votledi Íslands” með drónunum okkar.

Þetta var löng ferð sem hófst kl 06 að morgni og lauk ekki fyrr en um miðnætti.

Fegurðin sem við urðum vitni að er ólýsanleg. Landslagið séð svona ofanfrá er svo súrrealískt og langt frá öllum raunveruleika að orð og orðhugtök eru ekki til í íslensku rituðu máli til þess að lýsa því. Þetta var svona “Vá” tilfinning með mjög langri þögn á eftir sem við upplyfðum.

Það voru tvö þreitt og brosandi andlit sem lögðust á koddann þessa nóttina.

Votlendið er mjög erfitt að ljósmynda vegan þeirra litbrigða sem í því eru, en vonandi tekst mér að framkalla eitthvað úr þeim fjölda mynda sem lyggja eftir daginn og sýna ykkur.

I ( Rafn Sigurbjörnsson ) and my good friend Ellert Grétarsson photographer, went deep into the highlands yesterday to photograph “Wetlands of Iceland” with our drones.

It was a long journey that began at 6 a.m. and did not end until midnight.

The beauty we witnessed is indescribable. The landscape seen from above is so surreal and far from all reality that words and word concepts do not exist in Icelandic written language to describe it. It was  a “Wow” feeling, with a very long silence after which we experienced.

There were two tired and smiling faces lying on the pillow that night.

The wetland is very difficult to photograph due to the nuances in it, but hopefully I will be able to produce something from the many pictures that lie after the day and show you.

As a native photographer I feel responsible to leave all I can behind to show how it looked like, with my photography, before it’s too late.
