Radioactive Rocks - Hafnarfjörður, Iceland

    Newer Older

    4 minutes drive from my home (yes even closer than Straumur art center) in Hafnarfjörður is this interesting and popular beach. It is called Hvaleyri and has recently become one of the main seascape shooting location for Reykjavík photographers.

    Low tide reveals these very interesting rocks that are covered in green sea wheat. I do not remember seeing these rocks so green before. I am sure I would have noticed them if they where this green. But then again alot of changes are going on in the sea around Iceland these days due to warming climate.

    The trickiest thing about photographing a complicated area like this is getting a good composition. Isolating a single stone is impossible so I decided on shooting these three larger stones in the foreground to try to make some sense to the complex scene.

      I must tell you that your shots are the most stunning ones I've seen from Iceland. And I've seen a lot, believe me. You just gave a lot of ideas for my second trip to Iceland in May. Cheers!
