Behind the Scenes – Vestrahorn Mountain Iceland

One of my goals this year is to give you a sneak peek behind the scenes at Presetpro and a closer look at my travel photography. This week’s post takes us to the Vestrahorn Mountain in Iceland. We traveled to Iceland this summer as part of a two-month long photography tour across Europe. We started our journey in Reykjavik and worked our way around the entire outer rim of the Island. The Vestrahorn Mountain is located on the east coast of Iceland and it sits directly on the shoreline of the North Atlantic Ocean. This was one of the locations that I was really looking forward to photographing. I wanted to capture the mountain in a variety of different ways from daylight to sunset so I set up shop for the better part of the day and well into the night. The beach that surrounds the mountain is made up of black volcanic sand dunes. The combination of the winds and the black sand makes for a truly exciting day of photography. The terrain is so unique that it feels like you’ve been transported to some other worldly planet. I laughed when I looked back at these photos because I realized that I actually look like an astronaut with my rounded hood and the nylon cover over my backpack. The weather was constantly changing that day and we experienced fog, clouds, rain and clear blue skies all with in a few short hours. This is pretty typical for Icelandic weather and I found that having the right gear/clothing was extremely helpful in these difficult weather conditions. Tip: One of the best investments I made for this trip was purchasing a pair of waterproof kayak pants and diving boots. They allowed me to wade into the water and trudge through the wet sand. Being warm and dry allowed me to stay out in the elements longer and capture the shots that I really wanted. I also purchased a special clear plastic bag to put over my camera (see below) because I knew that the sand would be blowing in every direction. I was constantly dusting off my lens before every click but somehow I managed to get a few decent shots by the end of the day. Want to see my post-processed images? Click below.
