Location: Iceland, 2016.
This is probably the most photographed landmark in Iceland.
When I arrived at Grundarfjörður, which is a small town next to Kirkjufell, the weather was pouring, cold, and miserable. I was in despair but not surprised as the forecast had predicted poor weather all week. Nevertheless, I got up before sunrise the next morning. The rain had stopped, I thought I could see a patch of clear sky between the clouds. Feeling slightly encouraged, I drove out to Kirkjufellsfoss to try my luck.
The sky gradually brightened up as I was driving. I could see light peeking through the mountains in the distance. The clouds were clearing and I knew at that moment the odds were in my favour.
I walked around the waterfall and found this spot away from the crowd where there was a lake mirroring Kirkjufell perfectly. From there, I watched as the sunrise unfolded fully. It was the most stunning sunrise I have ever seen in my life.
I felt lucky. It was the perfect view to wake up to every morning.

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art.
Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
