Happy Earth Day 🎉🌍 April 22nd is dedicated for the support of environmental protection and all the gifts that the Earth provides us with. So for this occasion, I chose 10 photos that remind me of what a truly incredible place we live in. But looking back at these, I'm also reminded that we need to do better, much better, and myself included. But eventhough the journey is very long, I believe we'll get there before its too late. #earthday #earth_shotz #earthcapture #earthfocus #earth #wildlifeprotection #conservation #conservationphotography #wildanimals #wilderness #wildlifephotos #wildlife_seekers #wildlifelovers #naturehub #naturephotography #environtalprotection #earthday🌎 #earthday2021 #planetearth #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #iceland #icelandicnature #lostiniceland

I keep finding photos of orcas in my harddrive that I overlooked when I first took them out of my card 😆 not complaining. I'm still in awe of the brief moments I spent with these massive predators, but despite their brevity, the memories from those moments last a lifetime. #killerwhale  #whale  #orca  #blackfish  #whalewatching  #wildlifephotography  #teamnikon   #visualsofearth  #earthcapture  #atlanticocean   #oceanlife  #visiticeland   #icelandic #icelandadventure #icelandicnature #lostiniceland #iceland #icelandicwhales #ig_naturelovers  #roamtheplanet #featuredwildlife #guidetoiceland #iceland #marinemammalresearch #marineconservation #marinebiologist

It's international Dolphin day 🎉🎉🎉 so I decided to share a photo of one of my favourite species, the white beaked dolphin. These medium sized delphinids live in higher latitudes in coastal waters and can form pods of hundreds strong. I've personally seen them chase off Pilot whales and Orcas on the same day for access to feeding grounds. Impressive aerial acrobats too.

Humans are far from the only species with ponytail hairstyles. But the question is, who wears it better? 😆 My money is on the tufted ducks, effortless style. #ducksofinstagram #birds_brilliance #duckdynasty #hairstyles #naturehub #iceland  #islandia  #exploreiceland  #wildlifephotography  #canoneosr  #ig_iceland  #iceland_photography  #bbcwildlifepotd  #animals_captures  #WildlifeiG  #nuts_about_birds  #nuts_about_wildlife  #wild_nordic  #excellent_nordic  #raw_nordic  #earthcapture  #yourshotphotographer

Fireworks | Seeing the eruption from the air is spectacular, but the ground level also offers some amazing perspective. Having this natural furnace right infront of your face is just an incomparable experience that leaves you wanting more and more. Can't wait for the next visit 🌋🌋🌋 #icelandic  #icelandadventure  #iceland  #icelandicnature  #lostiniceland  #icelandtravel  #eruption  #volcano  #volcanos  #volcanoeruption  #lava  #magma  #geologyporn  #volcanology #earth #earthfocus #earthpix #earth_shotz #bbcearth #bbctravel #bbc #naturehub #naturephotography #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeotravelpic #natgeolandscape #natgeoadventure #natgeotravel #earthporn

A small video of the Fagradalsfjall eruption from the other night. It was my first proper drone flight, so I was quite nervous, especially after seeing so many articles about people loosing their drones to lava 😅 So I was very careful. I just love the perspective and scale that this view gives you, and can't wait to practice some more.

Continuing on the volcano high. Its amazing what a little change in aperture and shutter speed can do. All these photos were taken within minutes of eachother, it's just a question of lower and higher f-stops, which can deliver drastically different results. Personally, I love the first one, taken on F11. #icelandic  #icelandadventure  #iceland  #icelandicnature  #lostiniceland  #icelandtravel  #eruption  #volcano  #volcanos  #volcanoeruption  #lava  #magma  #geologyporn  #volcanology  #geologywonders  #natureshooters  #nature_brilliance  #naturegeography  #nature_sultans  #naturebrilliance  #iceland🇮🇸  #icelandiclandscape

A short close-up video of the eruption from last Sunday. The bubbling really draws you in, it was almost hypnotic. Can't wait to visit it again 🌋 #icelandic  #icelandadventure  #iceland  #icelandicnature  #lostiniceland  #icelandtravel  #eruption  #volcano  #volcanos  #volcanoeruption  #lava  #magma  #geologyporn  #volcanology  #geologywonders  #natureshooters  #nature_brilliance  #naturegeography  #nature_sultans  #naturebrilliance  #iceland🇮🇸  #icelandiclandscape

A few shots from the Geldingadalur eruption at Fagradalsfjall. As you come over the last hill of a tough hike and you see the cone spewing lava, any fatigue gathered on the way to this spectacle quickly dissolve. Now I can safely say that I've been to the land of ice and fire. #icelandic #icelandadventure #iceland #icelandicnature #lostiniceland #icelandtravel #eruption #volcano #volcanos #volcanoeruption #lava #magma #geologyporn #volcanology

Last week I had a chance to visit this deseased humpback whale on the Reykjanes peninsula, a very sad sight, but it gives you a chance to truly appreciate their size as you stand right next to it. It was a female, approximately 15m long, so an adult but relatively young. It had no clear wounds, so no clear cause of death, but most likely something internal. It might be related to neurological damage via toxin bioaccumulation from pesticide runoff or ingestion of indigestible materials like plastics but we'll never know since the authorities draged it back into the sea before it explodes from gas build-up. Nevertheless, we need to do better. #whaleconservation  #conservation  #cetaceanconservation  #marineconservation  #marinemammalconservation  #icelandicwhales  #Iceland  #icelandicwinterwhales  #icelandicnature  #visiticeland  #lostiniceland  #naturephotography  #biologystudent  #biology  #biologyfieldtrip  #universityoficeland  #håskóliíslands  #cetacean  #cetaceanresearch  #whalesofinstagram  #whales  #whalefluke  #marinemammals  #marinebiologist  #marinebiology  #marineresearch

Was lucky enough to witness this spectacle the other night close to home. I was getting really frustrated the past few months because every opportunity to see the aurora fell through for me, but after freezing outside trying to get a good shot, looking at your photos back home makes it all worth it.
