Iceland, with its extreme landscapes, jagged lava fields and Northern Lights, is arguably one of the most photogenic countries in the world. So it’s no surprise that over half a million tourists flock there every year to shoot the landscape. But 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.” (via PetaPixel)
He also wrote that he is definitely planning to return to Iceland, so definitely bookmark his website or follow him on Facebook, Twitter, 500px and all the rest of the social networks he links out to from his site.
Lee describes himself as a, “father of two wonderful girls, Creative Director, film maker, obsessive photographer, painter and manic doodler.” He shoots 5×4, medium format, digital and infrared, and it’s the last of these that has earned him some well-deserved viral fame as of late.
Using a converted DSLR with a 720nm conversion I enjoyed waiting for those moments that if your lucky may come a handful of times in a year. In Iceland you may just have to wait minutes. (via PetaPixel)
No. 7 Just blew my socks off ! :)
