Hey instafriends LOL 😂 I’ve been MIA from IG for a few months now... I got a new role in my company and I’ve been struggling to find balance between my career and my photography but I really miss being creative with my camera and editing tools. I’ve set a personal goal to post more of my work consistently and eventually hold an exhibition next year sharing some of my favourite shots from my travels.
Nek Minnit - no one comes 😭
I drove past it many time, and I always wondered what was at the end of this tiny gravel road leading toward the ice fronts of Langjokull.
Finally got that awesome rewarding shot !!!
A midnight remote drive through black desert on the East side of the Glacier - Southern Iceland.
To a stunning secret waterfall.
I am really proud of that shot as i never saw any social media post about it. So happy to have caught it on a long exposure with some of the best light too !
I just found this photo in my archive for our trip to Iceland. I never posted it and I’m not quite sure why. Maybe it’s because it would have been better if I was in the photo for perspective. Truth be told I’m lucky I got any photo at all. The amount of water that sprays back into that cave is unbelievable. You have to be quick, set it up and press the button before your lens gets totally covered in water spots.
Or maybe the real reason I never posted it was because at the time I was too angry about the other shot that was much better, but came out blurry... time has helped with that 😂

You can't but stand in awe of the power of Dettifoss waterfall in Iceland. The amount of water that passes through the river is mindblowing making you think where it is all coming from.
The answer obviously is from the huge Glaciers Iceland has but nevertheless is still is a great spectacle.
I was pleased with the conditions I had at the days end of this shoot as I think the moodiness of the conditions helped rather than a pleasant sunset.
The waterfall is famous from a things like movies and TV series and gets its fair share of visitors that get perilously close to the edge.
Time flies... and this is over a year ago.. crazy 😎 It’s from Iceland in the air, or at least some of the time 🤣 Haraldur @volcanopilot gave me an amazing trip and I saw my lovely Iceland from above 😍🇮🇸 This is rivers with glacier water 😍
Here in Denmark I’m working on to finish things and buying stuff 😃 and then I went to see my grandma. She thinks it’s stupid that I’m leaving. But I told her I’ll be home sometimes and we can always talk on the phone like we used to. Because I’m not gone 😆 .
It’s getting close know and it’s tickling in my stomach 😁😆
19 days and 18 hours to takeoff 😎🚐 #motorhomelife
I was at Godafoss around mid day and for a change it was very sunny that day and hence not the best conditions for landscape photography.
After trying different compositions of the actual waterfall, I found these rock formations which resembled an African Elephant with the long ears or even a snake if you will. Instantly felt like a frame from some Indiana Jones movie.
Today I spend the day all alone with the horses on a neighbor farm 😍🐴 It was amazing to feel their energy and I forgot about everything for a few hours ☺️ and I got a lot of love 💕 I went home with 1000 pictures 😆

Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves. Sometimes we worry too much about things we can’t control. Or is it just me?
. . . . .
For example, when we went to Skogafoss in Iceland, I originally wanted a picture up close in the mist. Then we ended up already soaked and freezing from the nearby Seljalandsfoss. I had just started warming up as my hair and clothes dried and didn’t want to go back to soaked and freezing again. This is as close as I got.
. . . . .
I also used to put a ton of pressure on myself to post everyday on Instagram. Everyone said you had to in order to grow. I see a lot of people posting lately about feeling frustrated and burned out with Instagram. I see people stressing about engagement rates and the follow/unfollow game and the algorithm. A year ago, I worried about all those same things. If I’m being honest, sometimes I still get frustrated with these things. However, last summer when we went to Iceland I stopped posting daily. In January, I stopped focusing so much time and energy on Instagram and put more focus on my blog (it’s paid off big time already!). What happened? Only good things - feeling free and finding my joy again.
. . . . .
It’s time to take back the joy and let go of the frustrations. We can’t control Instagram or the algorithm or how many people unfollow us. Sure, there are things you can do to help, but it is freeing to focus on what you can control and let go of what you can’t. Focus on the people who are your community. Be thankful for them and do your best work for them instead of worrying about the people who aren’t seeing your posts. If I don’t have time to post that day, I don’t post that day. If a post I loved doesn’t get the reaction I wanted, that’s okay. I still love the memory and the photo that came from it. Easier said than done, but I have found it liberating to not worry about the things I can’t control on Instagram and in life (I’m a natural worrier 🙈). Anyone else struggling with this?

Plane wreck 🇮🇸✈️ #Solheimasandur#Iceland#Europe#KEF
In 1973 a United States Navy DC plane ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach at Sólheimasandur, in the South Coast of Iceland. Fortunately, everyone in that plane survived.
Pretty cool, right?
I’ve been working so much this week, that I actually fell like it weekend today! 😅🤣 But nooo... and in my life at the moment day/night working days/weekend melts together 😆 BUT I’m happy about my “new life” 😃 let me know if you need a graphic designer! 👩🏼💻
This picture is from a lovely day with the Icelandic horses this winter 🐴
