Patterns of Nature
Patterns of nature are hidden all around you. By opening your eyes and examining our closest environment amazing patterns will emerge. Often it is in the tiny but also in those things we have before our eyes in the daily life but do not pay much attention to in the busy and overloaded everyday activity.
Artists of all kinds fetch their inspiration to the nature and its numerous creations. We Icelanders are lucky enough to live in a country that gives us access to such masterpieces.
Moment in the Icelandic Highlands
In the summer of 2006 I first traveled to the area around the Kárahnjúkar dam. I took of with my wife for a hike with the outdoor group Augnablik. We walked for five days around Kringilsá river, Kringilsárrani cape, Jökulsá á Brú river, Hafrahvammagil canyon, Laugarvalladalur valley, Mt. Snæfell. Norðurdalur valley and Jökulsá á Fljótsdal river. This voyage changed me.
This is a 5 minute photographic show with the music of Damien Rice.
This summer I searched for places in the environment that leaves nobody unmoved. The nature, its art and its stunning intuition in color choice and forms made me look closer and admire the creation. I show you a few pictures of boulder stones and the vegetable life that grows here and there in its shelter. The beauty you see at every step is hard to describe in words. Here you can see a tiny fraction of the art works of nature.
Ice Cave - Forms of Nature
Wonders of nature are hard to describe. One Sunday in March we took off with a small group in a four wheeling trip on Langjokull ice-cap. We looked at ice caves that are truly impossible to describe with words. Hopefully the pictures speak for them selves.
