Iceland

By Colin Baxter, 1954-

Following the success of "Scotland," "The Lake District," and "France," Scotland's most renowned landscaper photographer, Colin Baxter, now gives us a personal portrayal of the wonder that is Iceland.

Iceland sits astride the Mid-Atlantic ridge and is home to about 200 volcanoes, whose eruptions are frequent. Deep fjords fringe the coast and only the coastal lowlands are habitable.

This book is a personal selection of photographs from Colin Baxter's travels in this remarkable volcanic landscape, including photography of the 1998 eruption of Mount Hekla, the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatanajokull, and an array of geyser and waterfalls that make up this unique landscape. From the famous blue lagoon to the cliff scenery of the most westerly point in Europe, Látrabjarg, we encounter a land of ice and snow, sunshine and rainbows. Following the success of "Scotland," "The Lake District," and "France", Scotland's most renowned landscaper photographer, Colin Baxter, now gives us a personal portrayal of the wonder that is Iceland. Also Recommended: "England, the Nature of the Land," "France."
