Photograph The Land of Fire and Ice

Iceland’s volcanic landscape has earned it the name “The Land of Fire and Ice”: although the country should be covered in ice like Greenland, the heat generated by magma beneath the surface thaws the land.

The country’s volcanic activity – we all remember the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in April 2010 – has created fascinating scenery, and now travellers can get tips on how best to capture its beauty from award-winning photographers.

Tatra Photography’s new four night break takes guests to snap cascading waterfalls, towering mountains, geysers, glaciers and, of course, volcanoes under the expert guidance of photographer Chris Weston. Guests receive one-on-one tuition in landscape photography and advanced techniques such as High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) and night photography.

Based at Hotel Ranga – a celebrity hotspot – in the south, budding photographers are close to places of historical importance, a live volcano to the north-east and will have a view of Mount Hekla further to the North. As with most trips to Iceland there could also be the opportunity to witness the phenomenonal Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights).

The trip runs from 9-13 March 2011 and costs ?1699 per person including the following: return flights from London Gatwick to Reykjavik, airport transfers, four nights half board accommodation, transfers to photography locations and five days of professional tuition.
