Rufous Chested Dotterel - 5D3, 560mm, f/7.1, 1/400s, ISO 400.
The Rufous Chested Dotterel, gorgeous in breeding plumage can be found year round in Tierra del Fuego and in the Falklands. I photographed this one on Sea Lion Island in the Falklands.

Nesting Black Browed Albatross - Canon 5D3, 17 TS-E, f/14, 1/200s, ISO 200.
There was a time when I was an avid Avian photographer and here’s one from New Island in the Falklands from nearly 5 years ago. I made this as I started migrating to more "wildlife in landscape" photography from just wildlife.

Ice Arch - Phase One XF, IQ3 100mp, 150mm, f/11, 3s, ISO 50.
I like how the larger iceberg frames the smaller one in the background. Though expected, it was amazing how quickly the scene at the glacier lagoon was changing as the icebergs melted and flowed out into the sea and new ones calved.

Glacier Remnants - Alpa TC, IQ3 100mp, 23mm, f/11, 5s, ISO 50.
This afternoon we went to Fjallsárlón Glacial Lagoon which is just a few kilometers down the road from the Jökulsárlón. Fjallsárlón doesn’t have an outlet to the ocean, so the icebergs stay in the lagoon with many coming near the shore. I went off in one direction, seeking an interesting composition when I came across this scene. I thought an ultra wide angle would work well and with the water being very still, a long exposure would remove any small ripples. As I was setting everything up I heard the Glacier calve in the distance, a few minutes later the water started receding rapidly. I realized that my calm water was disappearing and very quickly captured this image. Fortunately, the focal piece of ice stayed still enough to be sharp during the 5s exposure, but only for this frame, with subsequent saves it too started moving. In the end, I got lucky as I like what the waves are doing to the ice in the middle ground.
Last Remains - Phase One XF, IQ3 100mp, 40mm, f/16, 5s, ISO 50.
Calved bits of the Breidamerkurjokull, an outlet glacier of the huge Vatnajökull wash up on this black sand beach. The whole place so picturesque, I don’t think you could plan it to be prettier.

Goðafoss - Phase One XF, 50mm, f/9, 1.3s, ISO 100.
The day of photography started at 5 AM yesterday and ran until just before midnight. We ended up visiting 3 iconic Icelandic waterfalls, starting with Goðafoss in the morning. The cloud cover was too dense for sunrise color but with some lighting peeking through at times and dramatic clouds, it still made for great photography.
