From glacial floodplains and icy mountains, to thunderous volcanoes and otherworldly waterfalls, Iceland’s diverse landscapes are as varied as they are downright spectacular.
Here photographer Tracy Ryan captures some of the Nordic island’s most impressive vistas.
Since the beginning of my photography career, I’ve always been fascinated with the Aurora Borealis.
So after being told for years that Iceland is the best place to witness the spectacle (particularly at Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon in south east Iceland), I finally journeyed to this Nordic gem.
I knew it was a beautiful country but I wasn’t prepared for just how striking and vastly different the landscape is at every turn.
In this collection of photos I wanted to capture just how magical the Iceland landscape is, in addition to the well-known northern lights that flicker in the nighttime skies.
What really struck me about this remote and wild country is the magnitude of everything.
The mountains, lakes, glaciers and waterfalls… all are enormous feats of nature that far surpassed what my imagination could have conceived.
