Iceland has always been at the top of my bucket list!! And I mean way before it became the must-visit place for all photographers on the planet! Whilst living in London I was obsessed with landscape photography so naturally Iceland was very appealing, but sadly it was somewhere I never made it too. Luckily I get to live vicariously through the many friends and photographers I know who have visited and captured beautiful imagery like this by VERONICA LOLA. She shares her experience with us.
"Travel plays a big role in our lives and family. At age 12, I was thrown on a plane with my brother and cousins to visit my mother's birth country, Ecuador, to see her family. Unfortunately, at age 12, you don't realise how important traveling is and you also don't appreciate your surroundings and experiences as you would at age 34. But, you don't forget. And even though that trip wasn't exactly "fun" for me at the time, it started to shape my deep desire to travel. It led to many more trips out of the country, with Italy being next and Argentina closely following, before the age of 18. Starting then, that was it for me. Fast forward 17 years later and here I am, babe on my hip, looking for the next place to visit. Cue Iceland.
