April News Update – Can’t Take My Eyes Off Magic Iceland

If you could only pick one country to visit with your camera, where would you go? For me, it would be Iceland, hands down! You see, there aren’t many other places in the world with such a variety of landscapes for unique photography opportunities – from ice caves and active volcanoes to the mighty and violent Atlantic Ocean.

As Iceland is such a picturesque location even from the thin air, I wouldn’t argue with the possibility to shoot at least one exceptionally outstanding image.
