18 Photographers Share Their Incredible Stories on Nature and Wildlife Photography
“This was one of the last shots I managed to make, before motion sickness got the better of me.”
I have always been drawn to nature’s untamed and constantly evolving landscapes. Iceland’s Fúlakvisl river is one such gem. The crisscrossing of the grey-silver tendrils on the surface of the black volcanic soil, for me, was reminiscent of the earth’s creation. I also deliberately gave the image a vertical crop, so as to emphasise the continuing long elongated patterns of the delta.

Know Your Photo History
When traveling to a new place, study the work of other photographers who have documented the same region. Not only will this serve as visual research in terms of ideas and possibilities, you can consciously make an effort to not ape what’s been done before.
