Spectacular Landscape Photos Capture the Magnificent Beauty of Iceland at Night

On a trip to Iceland, Spain-based photographer David Martin Castan worked primarily between dusk and dawn to capture breathtaking shots of the natural landscape bathed in spectacular colors. Iceland, which is home to roaring waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, magnificent volcanoes, and stunning ice caves, truly comes alive in Castan’s gorgeous, nighttime scenes.

Ethereal colors light up the photographer’s images, adding a sense of otherworldly beauty to the dramatic landscape. The eerie, green glow of an aurora borealis; the striking blue hues of an ice cave; the rosy, violet reflection of dawn on chunks of ice; golden rays from the setting sun illuminating an empty shore–Castan’s photos perfectly capture the unearthly beauty of Iceland, inspiring a serious case of wanderlust in anyone who has not yet had the chance to witness the awe-inspiring wonders of the Land of Fire and Ice.
