Iceland 2019


I couldn’t believe my eyes the first time I saw the alluvial fans in Iceland while flying above the earth in a helicopter. I was instantly drawn to the patterns, colors and mystery of how these fans were created. I was amazed at mother nature’s fabulous palette, it looked like rivers on fire. I became so immersed in the repetition, and design that I lost sense of any horizon. I felt dizzy but didn’t care because I felt I had entered another world. The alluvial fans were so unique from anything I had ever seen before. They resembled trees of life, or human veins, with so many elements colliding together. These braided glacial rivers of water, gravel, sand and sediment create islands and channels as they flow towards the sea. My eyes were opened to a new way of seeing and believing…from above.
