Iceland, the fairy-tale island in the North Atlantic, which Norwegian settlers arrived in 874 AD, when Ingolf Arnarsson settled there, has a landscape that is completely unique in terms of colours, contrasts and structures. Has visited Iceland 7 times in the period 2001 to 2017 - both as a tourist and as a photographer.
AERIALIS is a series of landscape photos photographed on 23 and 24 May 2017. Spent a total of 11 hours in a helicopter, spread over these two days, together with friend, mentor and photographer Timo Lieber. The motifs are mainly from the south coast, Vatnajökull and the areas around the glacier.
The name AERIALIS comes from AERIAL, which in this context is explained as "seen from the air", and IS for Iceland.
