The editor of the magazine Frjáls Verslun, also published by Heimur, Jón G Hauksson, asked me to send him the best picture I had taken this year. He will use it for his year end magazine.
I was not sure.
Maybe it was this image taken in late May just after the Grímsvötn eruption.
Black ice; at Svínafellsjökull glacier, southeast Iceland.
A moment which lasted only five minutes. The camera: Hasselblad CW503, 180mm lens and Velvia 100.
Or is it this moment?
Catching a moment onboard Börkur, the big Capelin trawler from Neskaupstaður, East Iceland.
Winter storm in February, on the way home after a very good catch.
An image of Iceland and how life is for so many people out at sea. The camera: Hasselblad SWC 905, 38mm lens and Velvia 100.
Or this image?
Taken at Snæfellsnes peninsula in late November on the way to a Mugison concert in Stykkishólmur.
There is something special about the low winter sun in Iceland. The camera: Hasselblad CW503, 350mm APO lens and Velvia 100.
Or this one? Same camera, same lens, same area (the Snæfellsnes peninsula),here in mid-April; the last snow.
Last snow. Snæfellsnes.
Or what about portraits?
Here: Film-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson, on Fuji GX680III,with 180mm lens and Velvia 100.
Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson.
... or musician Helgi Hrafn Jónsson, on Hasselblad CW503 with 120mm lens, ring flash and 160 Fujicolor PRO. Helgi Hrafn Jónsson
Both portraits were taken for the latest issue of Iceland Review magazine.
And here is the last one in this random MMXI gallery.
Iceland South Coast
Iceland’s south coast taken July 16th, on Dyrhólaey, Iceland’s southernmost point, around 22:00 / 10 pm, on Hasselblad CW 503 with350mm APO and Velvia 100.
But honestly, I have no clue which was the best image I took this year.
By the way…HAPPY NEW YEAR.
