Rebirth II by JoelBelessa Rebirth II by JoelBelessa
Iceland suffered from the longest winter since 30 years in 2013 and when i arrived there in May most of the usually green landscape was still full of oranges and yellows. Nevertheless the beautiful waterfalls of Iceland acted as a herald of spring, providing shelter from wind and a warmer climate and from there on the rich greens were taking back the countryside. This is the rebirth of icelands flora after a cold and long winter and you can clearly see the progression of colors to the horizon where it is still mostly dead grass and moss.

Amazing. That is the only word I have to describe this piece. People say a photo is worth a thousand words, not if it takes your breath away! I absolutely love the perspective, the sharpness and clearness of the photo. You can tell by the quality that this is a very professional photo. I also like the contrast between the water with the greenery and then slowly turning more desolate and brown as you look farther out. The sky is stunning on its own, let alone together with all the other elements of this photo. Spectacular job, makes me want to go to Iceland right now.
