2013: Our favorite images of the year
Another crazy year has gone by and so much happened again during the last 12 months! We visited Iceland for the very first time in 2013 and we spent several weeks there: 10 days in March for some ice caves, icy waterfalls and northern lights, 3 weeks in June/July for the highlands and remote geothermal areas and another 2 weeks again in September for the fall colors, a Cessna flight and again for northern lights (but unfortunately the weather then was not nearly as cooperative as in March). While selecting our favorite images, we were looking back full of nostalgia and at the same time full of anticipation – looking forward to the next trips! It was not love at first sight, rather a slow growing passion, but definitely one that might last for quite a while now…
And after these introductionary words you’ll probably not be very surprised that almost all of our favorite images come from this country. And also rather needless to say, that considering the amount of images from both of us, it was not easy for Steffen and me to select only just a very few and agree on the choices…
Our favorite images of 2013 in no particular order:

Hope you enjoy taking a look at them and make sure you click on every image since there is a short story that comes along with all of them. You might also check out our “Best of Iceland” gallery and if you are interested in more details about the locations we visited, please stay tuned since there are a lot of descriptions coming up (also in English!). And some new images from the US Southwest from winter 2013/2014 as well. Isa will also announce the newest publications on Facebook, so please feel free to follow/friend her there!
Thanks a lot for looking!
Seasons Greetings and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!
Isa & Steffen
Fantastic images from you both! Some of the best Icelandic images I’ve seen.It was a real pleasure viewing them.
Frohe Weinachten und ein glückliches neues Jahr.
Hi John, Iceland is pretty different than the Southwest at first glance, but when it comes to “remoteness” and “finding new places” there are some striking parallels. And I guess that’s one of the things we also liked most when we were in Iceland. :-)
Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year to you too!
Came here through Jim Goldstein’s collection of images. A gorgeous set of photos, it makes me want to visit Iceland even more.
Wow – wonderful photos! Thank you for sharing. –Ed
Thank you Alexander and thank you Ed for also sharing your images!
Absolutely stunning images! You guys had a really great year! Looking forward to seeing what you do this year!
I just discovered your work through Jim Goldstein’s blog post as well. Seriously amazing work and some of the best Iceland landscapes I’ve seen to date. Well done!
Thank you Patricia and Richard! I enjoyed looking at your images too! Happy 2014 and have another great shooting year!
you might consider an eguide like your VoF guide I bought/used during my USA roadtrip as I am also planning an Iceland trip the next couple of years
Visited your site via Jim Goldstein’s blog project list, glad I did. Love your collection of Iceland photos, very inspiring. Let me know when you sell prints of your Iceland photos. Here’s to a great 2014.
Hi Greg, yes of course we sell prints (on fine art paper, on canvas etc.). I will contact you by email.
Also thank you, Patrick. And ok, we might consider that.
In a single word: BREATHTAKING! I agree with the other comments. This collection is some of the best photographs I’ve seen from Iceland (and Iceland is a popular destination these days). Eager to see what you come up with in 2014. Cheers to great light and magical travels in the year to come!
Thank you so much, Colleen! I really appreciate your comment and I do love your photography also very, very much!
BTW we got your wildflowers ebook and we are looking forward to using it during the next El Nino season.
Wish you all the best for 2014!
Thank goodness for Jim’s blog, as I now have Iceland on my short list for photo and exploration destinations. Spectacular, each and every image! Choosing favorite images is such a difficult task some times ; )
You’ve set the bar and done a great job at it.
All the best! -Ben
All the best to you too, Ben! I also loved taking a look at your photography, especially at the fall foliage images from Colorado.
Thank you for sharing and happy 2014!
ich habe mir gerade die gesamte Galerie aus Island angesehen. Ein Foto ist schöner als das andere. Ihr zeigt deutlich, dass Island mehr hat als Polarlichter. Was für eine Landschaft.
Großes Kompliment an die Fotografen.
dank Dir für die vielen netten Worte!
Du fotografierst ja auch so gerne, ich denke, die Insel könnte Dir auch gefallen!
