Open space

Iceland, September 2018

Let’s go for a quick drive around a country with open space galore. In a year of confinement and isolation for most of us, these views of freedom and unity with our surroundings are more welcome than ever.

The open expanses of Iceland provide a great opportunity to play with the concept of negative space in the images, though days of rolling clouds, storms and rainbows can negate that plan. Some of these images also work well in black and white, so here’s a quick slideshow to give a colder, slightly more isolated, feel.

  1. The red roof against the blue sky is absolutely stunning. It didn’t work for me in black and white but in colour, wow………!


  2. Vast empty spaces and colourful structures… great place indeed to photograph !!

    You have chosen the right theme here, negative space and the second image is just amazing for it’s composition …

    Thank you for sharing, Debbie 🙂
