24th May 2020

Back with a Story Behind The Shot with Jökulsárlón, and also back in time. I shot this some years ago in a touristless Iceland, with a then-brand-new iPhone 6 Plus. That’s right, no fancy camera, just what was always in my pocket. The Story Behind The Shot is a column I regularly send to all newsletter subscribers.
