“Synchronicity II” | Kirkjufell, Iceland
When all elements combine on a single landscape, photons start creating music, and visual dreams suddenly become real.
My second published Kirkjufell sunset shot. After sleeping inside the rental car in Keflavik (the plane arrived at 1am), I decided to head to Kirkujfell next day. I had seen this mountain so many times on 500px and other galleries, and yet it still kept me fascinated every single time with its singular shape, frequently adorned by beautiful waterfalls. As soon as I arrived I could feel my heart racing with the excitement, and I rushed to the spot and photographed it from many angles until it was absolutely dark.
I’m not one who likes to brag about being “absolutely unique” on a certain place, creating his “own interpretations” of a scene, just for the sake of setting myself apart from other photographers. This photo is a great example of that. A Kirkujfell photograph with the three waterfalls is an image beaten to death? Well, under the perspective of online photography addicts or people with giant budgets, most certainly yes, but still only about 0,0000001% of photographers have the chance to visit such place. This is so much more about showing visions of nature than showing ourselves…
