Iceland is a land of fire and ice, shaped by volcanism and flowing water. To show the effects of this age-old interplay, Norwegian photographer Stian Rekdal has stitched together thousands of images of Iceland from a recent trip (view above).
I’m Norwegian, 35 years old and I’ve been a photo-enthusiast since I got my first DSLR back in 2007. In the beginning it was a great hobby, but nothing more. I would snap a few photos whenever I was travelling somewhere and the rest of the time the camera would sit in its drawer collecting dust.
It wasn’t until 2011 that I discovered timelapse-photography through the work of people like Tom Lowe and fellow Norwegians Ole Christian Salomonsen and Terje Sørgjerd. Seeing the way they captured northern lights and the night sky hit a nerve and I decided this is something I can and want to do. It was no longer about capturing a single moment in time, but how everything is constantly changing.
