I’ve done a number of posts on images from a great trip to Iceland last year with the wonderful Lulu Lockhart, but there’s still loads of unseen images as it was an extremely productive trip.
We’ll start with a couple from up in the mountains. Even in July there was lots of snow on the mountains, and we found some rocky outcrops that made great posing areas for Lulu.
I also took the super parachute skirt from the talented Alice Andrews which always works very well to make Lulu stand out more in the landscape. The first image is from Godafoss, which was taken extremely early in the morning given how popular the waterfall is.
The next image was taken at a geothermal power station. The buildings and red ground made it look like a base on Mars, and I love how the red dress mirrors the shape of the steam coming from the chimney.
It was Lulu’s idea for me to go low with a wide angle lens, to give the distorted effect that you often see in fashion images.
And while the previous two images were taken at a man-made geothermal plant this image was taken at a natural geothermal area. We just loved all of the steam in the background and the lovely early morning light picking out her body.
As well as mountains and geothermal areas Iceland is also known for Lupins and pretty Lutheran churches, so we were lucky to be able to get a shot showing these two iconic items.
I hope you enjoyed our latest batch of Iceland images, and many thanks to Lulu who almost five years after our first shoot keeps inspiring me, and is also such a great friend.
