Iceland

Reflections on the Ring Road

  Author:   George Fischer    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

In a new compact edition, vast landscapes, extraordinary natural sculptures of rock and ice, powerful waterfalls, distinctive wildlife and a fascinating culture shine from unique vantage points conveyed through the lenses of three important photographers. Travel the main Ring Road to circumnavigate the country with award-winning Canadian photographers George Fischer and Sean Fischer. Discover geothermal vistas, ice caves, glaciers and verdant valleys with Jon Gauti Jonsson, Icelandic mountain guide and photographer.

Different viewpoints from inside and out draw you into each photographer’s personal perspective on this land of ice and fire. Join them in playing with wildlife, following the lighthouse trail and chasing volcanoes. Along the way, you’ll encounter Iceland’s iconic horses and elusive puffins, a hardy population of clear-eyed Viking descendants, and familiar film sets in the rough. Watch your step, though–you mustn’t disturb the subterranean elf population– and be prepared to run from erupting volcanoes. All adding up to an unforgettable experience!
