Kaleidoscope

Highlands, Iceland

We live in an amazing world that is filled with wonderful things. Sadly, we rarely notice the wonder that surrounds us because it has become common place. That is one of the things I love about travel. It takes us out of what’s normal and presents us with something completely different. Surprisingly, when we return home we then see it again with new eyes.


When I had the opportunity to spend a week in Iceland, I made it a priority to get up into the Highlands to experience the area’s incredible geology. This volcanic area filled with lava, rhyolite, sulfur, iron and so many other rocks and minerals creates a kaleidoscope of color.

I created this image while standing on top of a mountain looking down at this section of land with a long lens. To give you a sense of perspective, the dark rock sticking up near the middle is approximately 25 feet high. In the upper left you’ll see snow melting into a stream. The almost neon green color is moss which grows in the most unexpected of places in Iceland.

Print

Kaleidoscope print

The print only option is the most affordable route to go. It is just what it sounds like: prints on high quality archival photographic paper without any mounting or framing. One of the benefits of going this route is that you can bring them to your local frame shop to have the matted and framed exactly as you like. Prints are also great if you are in a hurry as they usually arrive in 5-7 days from the time of order.

Plaque

This mounting option is by far our most popular format. It is both durable and beautiful. It allows the images to reveal an almost three dimensional quality creating the impression of actually being there. This is because there is almost no glare or reflection such as you find with even the most expensive types of glass. An additional benefit is that the artwork is very durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The artwork also resists fading because it has UV protection. When you order a plaque from us, they arrive ready to hang.

You can order prints in various formats such as print only, plaque, framed plaque, acrylic or matted. Upon special request, we also offer our prints in canvas.
