The Kirkjufellfoss waterfall in Iceland is of the precious nature features there in the land of fire & ice.To shoot the waterfall right beside the Kirkjufell mountain in the back is a little bit tricky to get at.

Fjällsárlon - south east Iceland

This is the smaller but nevertheless breathtaking glacier lagoon at Vatnajökull (Europes largest glacier). The breaking icebergs from the glacier here lie in a very calm lake which reflects perfectly the surrounding: high mountains, the mighty ice front and blue sky with clouds which we were lucky to have today on our most wonderful journey through Iceland!
So, we already took a lot of photos for you, but still we can’t get enough;-)

The Highlands of Iceland - Jack the Flipper still on tour
Aug 21st: crossing the Kjölur, or Kjalvegur = F35 Highland gravelroad from north to south gives us a good impression of the wideness of this magnificent country. It took us 4 hours to overcome 160km of worst gravel and earth road with only 4 degrees Celcius and wind about 10m/s on the plains.
But we were rewarded by the best light at dawn and the most cosy cabin next to Hekla volcano for relaxing. The next stopovers and impressions will com from the south coast: Vik y Myrdal and Skogafoss and many more.

Thanks for staying tuned and have a good start to the new week.

Étretat 8 | France
We welcome the sunday with a new upload of France.

Along the coast of the Normandie are many great natural motifs, like this great cliff coast in Étretat.

Many people throughout europe come here to get a few days of recreation. If it is the campsite or a luxurious hotel, when you walk along the coast of Étretat and watch closely, you can see that the cliffs are made mostly of chalk and flint (firestones).

Many world-renowned artists, like Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet & Claude Monet were attracted to this place. They came here for the inspirational nature and recreation.

The town of Étretat is crossed by the the GR 21 (long-distance hiking path) from Le Havre to Le Tréport.

Tutelum 1 | Waterdrop Studio

In our Waterdrop Studio we built a complete high speed photography box in which we took photos for 2 weeks! The photos were taken with a normal DSLR camera (Nikon)

From over 10000 exposures we chose 6 very unique water sculptures and created the Aqua Momentum series.

Water is THE element of our all lives. We drink it every day (if we have clear and healthy liquid to drink!!) we wash us with it, we need it and the use of it is inevitable for us humans. We know it, how it look like in liquid state or steam state. We use it to generate power and we bore a well to give it to the people who need it most urgent!

But we didn’t know how it looks like when it is photographed in a ten-thousandth of a second? Or did we?

Jack the Flipper created a special view on our element No.1! We get many questions about it and nor was any digital image processing necessary!

Forge yourself an opinion! What do you think about it? What do you see in it?

Iceland 2014 - Northwest Coast

- Hvitsekur Rock standing at Húnafjördur in a longexposure capture during high tide in the afternoon.

- Gravelroads are very common and a challenge for our car and our spine discs ;-)

- Sheep are everywhere: more than people. Our mascot Flóki loves them.

- If there is no wind for a moment the water of lakes and fjords is like a mirror to the landscape.

 
This is only a small amount of places we have been and pictures we took. Soon we will discover the Highlands of Iceland and will stay in the south for a few days. See you soon.
