For the last photo of my Iceland series, let me please share with you a drone selfportrait that I took in one of the most incredible and surreal places I've ever been to! Tomorrow I'll be answering your questions in my InstaStories. Whether it's about photo gear, my 5-month road trip #peaksofeurope or anything else, #AMA and I'll try my best to answer you :) @haglofs #mavicpro
With the early morning light, this mountain looked like an ice cream or some kind of fluffy marshmallow. I know it's a weird comparison but trust me it really did look like that in real! #peaksofeurope @toyotaiceland
Deep inside of me I know I belong to warmer places. Having Greek origins, every time I go back to my parents country I instantly feel like being home, and the last two weeks have confirmed this although it's been 8 years since my last visit. For some reason though, as a photographer, warmer and dryer places don't inspire me as much as the Nordic countries or the Alpine regions do. I keep looking back at the photos I took on the first 6 weeks of this road trip, and even though I have taken many shots in Greece already (I share a selection of 15-20 every day in my InstaStories), I just want to keep sharing older images like this one I took in Iceland a month ago. Another reason for this also is that being full time on the road, and with the laziness and tiredness that comes with the extremely high temperatures, I haven't got the chance to properly edit any photos from Greece yet. But the time will come and I can't wait to show you the country of my ancestors through my lens, also it sure will be a big change from what I used to capture the last two years. I guess this is also part of the challenge. #peaksofeurope
Patterns of the Highlands #peaksofeurope
This photo shows a very brief moment (exactly 1/500 of a second) and yet the amount of water pictured here is almost impossible to calculate. Just imagine now how much water is running through this waterfall alone every minute, every hour and every day! Nature is such a crazy thing when you really start thinking of it. #peaksofeurope
One of the most breathtaking places I've ever been to! #peaksofeurope

Today is Day 54 of my road trip around Europe and I'm currently in Greece. Since I've hit the road almost two months ago I've witnessed many sunrises as part of my photography project, but that one I experienced on Day 42 in Iceland will be hard to beat for sure. I just couldn't believe my eyes that day, and it sure wasn't because of the lack of sleep! #peaksofeurope

You don't get to see the Highlands lit by the morning sun every day but when you do it's a show you will never want to forget. #peaksofeurope

Just a casual late afternoon swim in a hidden hot spring pool in Iceland. #peaksofeurope

It always amazes me to witness how water and life are so linked to each other. #peaksofeurope @toyotaiceland

Iceland sure feels like being on another planet. #peaksofeurope Thanks for the epic scenic flight above the Highlands @flightseeing!
Today is my last day in Iceland. In 12 hours I fly back home for a few days, to get ready for the second leg of my 5-month road trip that will start on Saturday. I've already taken 10K+ photos in the last 10 days (and half of them were shot yesterday on that epic scenic flight above the Highlands, don't miss out today's story!) and haven't had the chance to properly edit any of them yet, so here's a photo I took on my last trip here 2 months ago and that I haven't shared yet. This has been my iPhone background for a month now, if you want it too go follow my other account @johanlolos and I'll upload it soon in the Stories ;) #peaksofeurope

As soon as we landed in Iceland we hit the road and drove straight to this place in the Highlands that I had never visited before. This is my 4th trip to the land of Fire and Ice and I have to say the landscape that appeared to me that day just blew my mind. I've never seen such a dramatic vista before. #peaksofeurope.

A last one from my recent trip to Northern Norway. I've been so unlucky with the weather here in Iceland so far so it feels good to look back at those images of the endless golden summer light I experienced in the Arctic. #peaksofeurope
Back from beyond the Wall. #peaksofeurope @toyota_norge @toyota.europe

Explore the outdoors and enjoy the longest days of the year. This was shot at 1am in the Lofoten. #peaksofeurope

That 4am morning glow. Classics are called classics for a reason and sometimes it's just hard to beat the most famous angles no matter how bad you want something more unique. I left Norway a couple of days ago and I'm now in Iceland (don't miss out my daily stories), exploring the Highlands. But before posting some fresh Icelandic content, I still have a few shots from @northernnorway I'd like to share.

The sight you get on a regular flight to Longyearbyen from Tromsø. I don't know many places offering this kind of views when flying above from a Boeing 737. #peaksofeurope @visitsvalbard @northernnorway
