Infrared Photographs of Icelandic Landscapes by Andy Lee.
Between the landscape photos, aurora photos, waterfall photos and time-lapse project, Iceland probably ranks among the top most photographed countries in the world. And while all indications are that it, without a doubt, deserves that title, finding a photo series that offers a fresh perspective on the country can be tough.
UK-based photographer Andy Lee, on his first visit to the country, came back with a series of photos titled “Blue Iceland” that captured the waterfalls, peaks and roads in, literally, a whole new light. Using infrared photography to pick up invisible light rather than visible light, Lee transformed Iceland into a series of stark, moody and somewhat dreamlike silhouettes. At times the austere rock formations and glowing waterfalls almost appear to be painted. You can see much more of Lee’s work over on his portfolio site. In the words of Lee himself, “Infrared and Iceland, a match made in heaven.”
As he puts it on his website, infrared and Iceland are “a match made in heaven.” Well-composed landscapes, often featuring a single, distinct feature like a lone peak or a solitary church building define his Iceland and Blue Iceland galleries, both of which are captivating in a way that your standard Iceland photography just isn’t anymore.
