We've all seen amazing photographs of Iceland, especially on the Instagram. Last winter, we sent travel photographer Tanveer Badal to capture unique perspectives of a photographer’s paradise. Here’s what he came up with on his drone. All shots were captured on the trip he took with Classic Journeys’s Multisport Tour throughout Southern Iceland, which you can read about here.
