The magical Icelandic lighthouse at Dyrhólaey

This Icelandic lighthouse is located near the spot where I took pictures of beautiful beach with black lava sand with huge stone. We were staying in Vik. As it turned out, it was a good starting point because close the Vík you will find lava columns Reynisdrangar, this amazing lighthouse and endless beaches along the coast. If you would like, right at the lighthouse you can even book accommodation. The Lighthouse hotel accommodates five guests with two double bedrooms and one single.

The light station at Dyrhólaey was Established in 1910. The first lighthouse was a steel skeletal tower, prefabricated in Sweden, and the present lighthouse was built in 1927. I’ve done a couple of photos of the lighthouse, I hope you will like them.

Giant rock on the black sand beach in Iceland

Dyrholaey is a nature reserve in the south of Iceland. In the local reefs there are a number of birds nests. You can see them as they are floating over the sea and catch fish.  The coastline is covered in beautiful beaches with black lava sand. A short walk away on a grassy headland is this magnificent lighthouse.

The abandoned airplane wreckage in Iceland

When I saw the abandoned wreckage of this aircraft, it  caught my attention so much that I immediately looked for the location of this place. A lot of the most famous places in Iceland are located right next to a famous ring road. But this place is a little out of the way.

Planning your trip in advance is very important. It is easy to find this place, the wreckage is located about 10 km from the town of Vik. Also, you will not even need a 4×4 car. Check this useful guide from Matthew Karsten.

The reason why I deleted my account at 1x.com

1x deleted account

In recent days I have noticed a big step backwards from the popular photo portal 1x.com. The entire portfolios of excellent photographers around the world are now circulating on the internet and their photos are being sold for ridiculous money.

Curation of the photographs

For those who have yet to come in contact with the 1x.com website. The 1x.com photo portal is one of a kind because all the pictures that are shown on the web passed through the curator, because you can find only a selection of the best. Only about 3% of all photos are published after the curation process. In the past, being published at 1x.com meant a great deal to us. Unfortunaely this is not the case for me anymore.

10 things you should know about car rentals in Iceland

Car rental in Iceland

If you are going to travel around Iceland, you are definitely considering a car rental to be completely free during your explorations of all the interesting places that Iceland has to offer. I arrived at Keflavik International Airport around midnight. Personaly it was the best idea to rent a car directly from the airport and return it on the way back.

After a brief search of offers, I decided to use the services offered by GO ICELAND, their office is located approximately 500 meters from the airport. You can pay extra charge for the airport pick up service if you like. However, it was not necessary in this case because you will recieve an e-mail before your arrival with a map of the location for the Keflavik walk in office.

Beautiful architecture of Vienna University of Economics and Business

As you probably know, I like to shoot architecture very much. To this place I was first brought by my friend Dragan, for what I am very grateful to him. It is really a genuine masterpiece of architecture.

Since my first visit to the Vienna Universiy of Economics and Business I come back here almost regularly when I visit Vienna. When I am already losing my strength to find and explore new and new locations, this is exactly where I find my refuge. It is a complex of buildings of so magnificent architecture that from each of the visits I always take home at least one slick photo.

Top 4 places for taking Long Exposure Photos at Neusiedler Lake in Austria

For some time I wanted to write an article about my top 4 places for taking Long Exposure Photos at  Nesiedler Lake (Neusiedler See). This lake is close to my heart from the first time I was there. Three years ago I started taking Long Exposure photos and indeed since that time I return to this place regularly.

This lake is my training ground where I try to improve my vision. It’s the perfect place to learn how to work with composition. Thanks to the fact that  Neusiedler Lake is almost behind my house I have the opportunity to deal with different weather conditions when shooting. The photographs appearing in this article were photographed in overcast, cloudy sky and also during fully sunny weather. It’s proof that you must constantly experiment. Never give up even when the weather is not ideal.
