Flying over Iceland was an artist’s dream come true.
The land had a barren beauty and running through it all was this incredible turquoise river. The land appears dull in comparison to this amazing river.Overhead the sky turned cloudy and the river was darker with more blue.As the river neared the ocean the colour became darker and inkier.
This is the colour of the ocean where it meets that turquoise river. This shot is almost immediately after the last shot but the sun had come full out again changing the colours radically – the dark blue bay above looks almost red here.From the teal ocean looking over the green-gold land..From the land with a volcanic cone looking over to the teal ocean.These these aerials were all taken from our regular Icelandair flight that flew over Iceland on its way to Copenhagen. I also did a post on the amazing landforms in Iceland taken on the same flight. I have Googled the ‘turquoise river in Iceland’ trying to find its name and there are a couple of candidates: the Kolgrima River delta or the Pjorsa River. Many of the on-line photos of this river have been taken with drones or from a small chartered plane and are truly astounding.
