Like many, I have a soft spot for Iceland. About five years ago I managed to travel there for a few days and despite my high expectations, the place didn’t disappoint one bit. It’s a truly wonderful country and it’s filled with a unique sense of beauty and a landscape unlike any other place I’ve ever been to.

Last weekend Sean Pecknold was lucky enough to travel there and on his visit he took some rather amazing photos of the place. The way in which Pecknold captures the landscape through a saturated and earthly palette really sits well upon the Icelandic landscape and it leaves me longing to return to the mountains, glaciers, fjords and geysers of the country. Above is only a small selection of what he saw but it should be enough to whet your appetite for the whole series which can be viewed online here.

    I’ve been seeing Iceland all over the place this past week. I think it’s a sign. Amazing shots.

    I knew right away, on my first visit, that I would be returning again and again. And if the landscape weren’t enough, check out its literature and the music.

    iceland is a beautiful, mythic place no doubt, but are these photos truly “stunning”?

    @the7000club I think so, but I guess it all depends on how you define “stunning”. I think they carry a “striking beauty” which is one definition of the word. I mean look at the moon in that first photo.

    …but hey, let’s not get bogged down in semantics and just enjoy the photos, eh!
