Iceland is a fascinating place, particularly to a visitor from an ancient continent such as Australia. To walk on ground that was instrumental in the fomenting of the nuclear winter that preceded the French Revolution, is an awe-inspiring experience. To think that such a small island has the capacity to bring our civilisation to a shuddering halt gives pause.

 

With all of this, it is also an amazingly beautiful place. I have been fortunate to take a number of helicopter flights in Iceland. To see it from above presents an even more beautiful view. One wonders why Nature produces such beauty which mere mortals rarely experience, and certainly not at ground level.

 

The prints in this series are from a flight over the Ranga River delta area. I was overwhelmed as the helicopter brought us over the delta. The elements were on full display. The delta floodplain carries runoff from this raw land with copper, iron and myriad other elements.

 

As a photographer who prefers intimate, abstract landscapes, this was a gift. I have never before or since been so intensely involved in any subject.
