I have a thing with symmetry, it appeals to me. And so does contrast. This has both.

The sky was unusually clear and bright in Reykjavik a couple of weeks ago. I only had a few hours to walk around, but enough to do a bit of street photography with sharp whites, long lines and dark shadows. This is the wall from the massive Hallgrímskirkja, a great backdrop for this kind of shot.

Reykjavik’s Hallgrímskirkja is a truly impressive modern building overlooking the city. You can’t help feeling dwarfed by the sheer size and greyness of it. I shot this at dawn when there was no one around (unsurprisingly considering how cold and wet it was) and I felt the grimness of it all matched the weather perfectly.

Geyser in Geysir

A short business trip in Iceland let me at least understand the appeal of this harsh looking country for photographers. Next time I go there, I’ll be better equipped, but in the meantime, here’s a shot of Geysir, the geyser that gave all geyser’s their name. It doesn’t look that spectacular here, but a few microseconds later and the whole place was white with exploding water drops. In other words, when it’s at its highest, you can’t see it up close.
