Crash Tactics

Posted on Aug 17, 2012 in Landscape

On the 24th November 1973, a DC-3 of the United States Navy ran out of fuel and crash-landed. There were no fatalities. After a few researches on the net and with the use of a GPS device my friend and I located this plane wreck. A great adventure. Shoot on Sólheimasandur beach (N63 27.547 W19 21.891), South Iceland.

  1. The lonely feeling in this one is really striking, it really feels like there where no survivors, Nice shot!

  2. Une coquille vide balayée par les vents dans un désert de solitude…. stunning!

  3. Great and strong shot ! Very beautiful BW conversion !

  4. That’s a fabulous monochrome. Your use of black and white increases the sombre atmosphere. Many compliments.

  5. Excellent photo!
