The 20 Photos Taken By a Polish Photographer with a Drone Will Make You Love Iceland
These 20 photos taken by a Polish photographer with a drone will make you love Iceland. If you don’t know much about Iceland, here it is.
Iceland is a Nordic island country located at the juncture of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans.
With a population of 329,000 and an area of 103,000 km2, Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe.
It has the capital at Reykjavik, which is also the largest city in the country. Plus, the island is volcanically and geologically active.
The country is made of a plateau characterized by sand and lava fields, mountains and glaciers, with many glacial rivers flowing to the sea through the lowlands.
In other words, Iceland is a great island that has breathtaking views. So, the Polish photographer Jakub Polomski, knew that and sent out his drone to capture the most amazing photos.
In July this year, he traveled to Iceland, and during two weeks he drove 4000km including the seaside.
To capture the pictures he used his DSLR camera for landscapes and a drone with 12mpix camera to capture aerial photographs.
He says: “Iceland is unique land, however, some locations look really abstract in the bird’s eye view.”
The National Geographic prize winner was born in 1985 and started his photographic adventure when he was 20 years old.
Just like many great photographers, Jakub has thought himself to photograph by taking pictures around his hometown Cieszyn in southern Poland.
His favorite things to capture are the mountains. Because of his passion he began traveling the world, and the result of his journeys are the many awards he has won among the years.
Since 2007, he has been awarded with many prizes and commendations in various photography contests.
The most important for him, by far, is National Geographic statuette gained for the first place in category “Polish Landscape” in 2010.
His limited photographs can be purchased worldwide in global network of galleries „YellowKorner”, in „FotoFoam” gallery (New York City), and in web galleries „Offset” and „Art of Brands”.
