When nature photographer Erez Marom recently reached out to us to share his Iceland photographs, we were in complete awe of the breathtaking places–including Godafoss, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the whole world–that the artist captures through his adventurous explorations. Each magical landscape conveys the silent and dazzling beauty that Iceland has to offer.
Born and based in Israel, Marom says he is drawn to the cold climate of Iceland because it is so unlike the warmer climate of his home country. Every year, he spends a full month traveling throughout Iceland to capture the golden sunsets, Northern lights, frozen waterfalls, and wintery atmosphere, occasionally using long exposures to maximize the alluring elegance of the place.
Marom says, “I think more people should be exposed to these so-called ‘harsh' landscapes. Often times, they're much more exciting and spectacular than tropical beaches or green meadows. I'd like to allow people to understand that these, seemingly, alien places are right there and that you can visit them and enjoy what our world has to offer, in a different way.” With that in mind, Marom offers three annual photography workshops where he leads people on a photographic journey throughout the mesmerizing country.
