THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO
Chris Burkard is a self-taught photographer and artist, based in Central Coast California, whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel subjects. For this photo, Chris captured a river from a plane in Landmannalaugar, Iceland. In Chris's words...
"I have spent these last few years of my life obsessing on these glacial rivers. It's a personal project that has taken me high into the air to look down on these sediment flows that come from the glacier. I have attempted many times to shoot this river during the right time of year, when the Colors are in full affect... (A lot of failed attempts) And yesterday it finally came together. I will never forget this experience." — Chris Burkard
