I traveled to Iceland during its winter months of December and January for three weeks. During this time, I photographed the amazing winter landscape that Iceland has to offer. Sometimes called The Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland has it all.
Lake Baikal is still the pride of Russia and the deepest and cleanest lake on the planet, about 19 percent of the lake fresh water is contained in this lake. Its purest water creates an incredible world in winter when the lake at one moment is covered with ice crust.
Every year I capture an Easter squirrel photo series. Always with new scenes and props. This time the big difference is that there is still 1-meter snow laying in the end of March here in the middle of Sweden.
I come to Iceland several times in year, but my favourite season there is winter. Why winter, when there's darkness most of the time and the weather is rough? The answer is simple. I love the atmosphere of being in the mountains alone, watching northern light and stars, feeling the energy of island and the ocean.
The past months I went to frozen days of winter and endless hours of darkness. Although I was born in autumn, I really love those long and lazy summer days, so during these shortest days of the year, I'm really counting the hours of the returning of spring.
