benlowy New York City, NY | July 28, 2015

Packed like sardines during the morning commute.
I loved Iceland - it was amazing! And I love traveling all over the world.
But I love coming back home to NYC and all its variety.

  •   rawhitiroa Hey @benlowy any recommendations for Iceland? I'll be there end of next month 21h
  •   al_samoush Good one 20h
  •   photohumourist @benlowy I feel like that about London. I'm in Ireland at present and already thinking about that feeling of being back home in London, catching that energetic drift, letting it carry me along and show me pictures. But it'll have to wait, for Ireland is my subject for the next couple of weeks. It's good to see you back to New York photos again, though I enjoyed your marvellous Icelandic works. 20h
  •   lexiseyephotography_22 Nice shot! 🏾 19h

A waterfall crests over the American side of the Silfra Gap in Þingvellir National Park. That great wall of rock is the American continental tectonic plate. Behind me is the European plate and I am standing on the devergent in-betweenus of the world. A slowly sinking strip of land where the first democratically elected parliament in the history of the world was held in 930 AD.

The movement of movement. The fluidity of fluid. I'm trying too hard to write something poetic.
But there it is.

The living sea and the dead iceberg.
I'll be posting these long exposure landscape still movie amalgams as I edit them. I'm going through 14,000 images from my recent assignment to Iceland. Lots of office work this week #photojournalism #reportage #documentary #landscape #nature #iceland #movingstill #animation #onassignment #experiment

Just back in the USofA but wanted to post one of my last images from my Iceland assignment. On my last day I went on the epic Fimmvörduháls hike and decided not to take my camera with me. I just wanted to experience and remember the hike on my own. But as I was catching my breath and eating a quick snack I made this image at the base of the Skogafoss waterfall.

benlowy Silfra, Iceland | July 11, 2015

My diving partner struggles in the 2° celsius water that flows through the Silfra gap. Beside from diving in the cleanest and coldest fresh glacier water, I am also swimming between two great tectonic plates. On the left is the European plate, on the right, the American plate. In Iceland you can literally swim in-between the world. No wonder Jules Verne had the entrance to the Center of the Earth here.
And yes. 2° water is ridiculously cold.

Awesome experience today flying with @pie_aerts @pep_dekker and @flightseeing above Iceland's massive glaciers and famous braided rivers.
The rivers are formed by numerous channels of water seperated by various amounts of sediment and depth. Much of the water is from glacial runoff.
Iceland, you amaze me once again.

The iceberg graveyard.
Breathtaking.
Few things Ive witnessed - both good and bad - have had a profound spiritual effect on me: The birth of my children, sleeping next to wild pumas, the mass graves in Iraq. Iceland joins the list. Epic epic land. And the mind boggling Jökulsárlón iceberg lagoon takes the cake.
