This is where I begin / by Jussi Ulkuniemi

Sometimes you wander to a location so vast and overwhelming that it takes over all your senses. You tremble and gasp at the sight, but you loose the sense of coldness. "How can you ever manage to capture something like this into a photograph" isn't a thought I usually undergo, but that tension skyrocketed while walking towards the pitch black mountains of Thórsmörk in Iceland. Somehow, just somehow I wanted to capture that enormous feeling, a sense of connection with nature.

This photo is part of my Iceland series taken on a trip sponsored by Olympus camera brand, who sent 9 of the best Nordic Instagramers to test out the Olympus OM-D EM-1 camera. Visit for more info.

More photos of this trip are currently shown only on my Instagram feed: @Skwii
