Northern Lights.

Beautiful shot of the Northern Lights from the perspective of a drone by Oli Haukur Myrdal based in Keflavik, Iceland.
Using a high-end camera (Sony a7S II) that can handle low-light settings and strapping it to a drone, Myrdal was able to capture stunning views of the Reykjanes Peninsula with just enough moonlight to light up the scenes.
The motion of the drone and the different perspectives gives the film a real dimensionality.

Australian photographer William Patino’s short time in the photography world has made a big impact.
The young artist, who currently resides in Wollongong, Australia, began to pursue photography in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.
After working as a tradesman for over 8 years, the shift in careers was drastic, yet Patino hit the ground running and has managed to build a name for himself in the industry, working for various clients including Tourism Australia, Flight Centre, and Apple.

Recently, Patino took a 10-day journey to explore Iceland, and was blown away by the rugged beauty of the country’s natural landscape.
The trip refreshed the young artist, as he wandered the country and captured some stunning images of the awe-inspiring natural beauty of our earth.
Given it’s size, Iceland had a fairly low density of people, with a population of just over 300,000.
Known for it’s dramatic volcanoes, geysers, and hot springs, the country has an untouched and raw quality that Patino’s landscape shots accurately portray.

Iceland’s Guardians of Light.

Guardians of Light
As they bound across the snowy tundra of Iceland, these horses remain unafraid.
The Icelandic horses are prized for their resiliency and demeanor, which comes out in the Winter as they seem undaunted by the extreme and temperamental weather.

Alien Light in the Snow.

The geometric shapes, sharp lines and luminous spheres have an eerie effect as the camera pans around the valleys and mountains before encountering the luminous forms that seem alien.

The installations were created in real time, without the use of CGI, by using electroluminescent wires and shapes placed on a rock surface or suspended in the air using a kite or drone.
