13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Iceland by Air

I had only 7 days in Iceland and wanted to maximize how much I could see and capture in a country that probably takes a month to do any kind of photographic justice to the endless array of epic landscapes there. To do that I booked an air charter over a vast section of the country's central highlands that included trekking routes, glacial rivers and deltas, along with some very, very remote glacial and geothermic scenes. All in all I got about 1500 shots in over the 90 minutes was in the air.
