    Gold in Nature / Seasons

Reynisfjara black sand beach in Iceland. I visited this spot twice in the past and it was foggy and raining, so I could not see the sea stacks! During my recent visit late December, we had gale-force wind, but I set up my tripod anyway and kept shooting in hope, that some shots will come out sharp. This is an 8 second exposure with a neutral density filter. The next day the road was closed towards the East due to the crazy weather conditions.

Born in Slovakia, Erika is continuously on the move between the continents exploring the world and capturing the beauty of our Planet. Erika's work reflects both her passion for travel and fascination with nature. Photo tours:
