I have been a landscape photographer for over thirty years and I have never seen anywhere quite like Iceland.
It is a land being torn apart by the colossal forces of continental drift. It sits over a volcanic hot spot that heats the Earth makes the ground tremble. In places, steam and vapours leak into the air like the breath of that first giant.
Such tales of Ymir’s shattered bones feel very real here.
Waylandscape, one of my other websites presents my photography from a variety of places, mainly Britain, but this site is dedicated to Iceland.
When I returned from my first trip here I knew that my work from this extraordinary place deserved to stand alone.
My name is Gary Waidson, although many people know me better as Wayland.
Welcome to the Icelandic Landscape. Bear with me, this is a work in progress.
