Skalar: Reflections on Light and Sound in Kraftwerk Berlin
Lost in Amsterdam
The ‘Lost in Amsterdam’ title image is somewhat fitting, as I often got a bit turned around in a light, slightly-panicked jog, trying to catch what colour the faint sunlight could provide. I needn’t have worried, it’s not as if Amsterdam shuts up shop and goes dark in the evening.
Berlin Double Exposure
Switching from the outdoor to the urban landscape and finding a new perspective with double exposures.
Snæfellsnes in West Iceland
The Snæfellsnes peninsula is on the western part of the island of Iceland, and boasts Kirkjufell (literally Church Mountain) and some lesser known gems like Skarðsvík Beach.
The Colourful Streets of Reykjavik
Reykjavik is northernmost capital in the world, however due to its “sub-polar oceanic climate” it is only the fifth coldest capital, on average. Walking around the city you wouldn’t guess you’re so far north, the city is colorful and the people are so warm you might think you’re closer to the equator than the arctic.
Gjáin Valley and Hjálparfoss
The Gjáin valley is like many other attractions in Iceland, things look quite barren and uninteresting and as seemingly out of nowhere a spectacular canyon or valley appears.
Sigöldufoss Waterfall, Iceland
Sigöldufoss is a small waterfall, by Icelandic standards, however the desolate landscape contrasted against the almost pure turquoise makes it a sight worth seeing.
