Forever Light

The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Iceland

by Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa

Iceland’s scenery is world-renowned and world-class. It is a place photographers dream about visiting (and the dreams don’t stop once you’ve been there). Having a good guide to an area can mean all the difference between a bad photo trip and a great one. Simply put, Forever Light: The Landscape Photographer's Guide to Iceland, by Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa, is the best photo guide to Iceland available, and it will make your own photo adventure in the Land of Fire and Ice as thrilling as can be.

Scouting locations can be a difficult slog—indeed, I have been left more than once spending hours rambling in the wilderness trying to follow ill-written directions (sometimes not even in English!) to natural beauty that I never could find. But I didn’t face that problem in Iceland, thanks to this incredibly valuable ebookIndeed, I was so impressed by this book (and I’ve read many a guide that has left me cold), and could see how much the authors deeply know and love their subject, that I concluded that I must share it with you.

Forever Light contains amazing images of many of Iceland’s natural wonders, such as the Jökulsárlón ice lagoon, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Hvitserkur Troll Sea Stack, Dettifoss Falls, and many others. If you want to know more about how you too could visit and photograph the natural scenic attractions of this beautiful nation, I can think of no better introduction.

  • This is one of the best and most thorough photography guides I have seen. Truly a wealth of fantastic information that covers all aspects of planning a trip to Iceland, regardless of if it is your first trip or a return. I only wish I had this type of information available in a well put together e-book when I first visited this amazing place. — Koveh Tavakkol

  • I’m not blowing smoke when I say you and Sarah Marino have produced one of the best location guides I’ve seen. — Michael Bollino

  • Forever Light rapidly became our bible during our month's visit to this paradise. . .  It's a great read, the photos are fabulous, and what an addition it was to our trip. — Dorrie Arnold 

  • Forever Light is an eBook that I recommend to pretty much everyone. And I do mean everyone. Even if you are not a crazy Cliff-bar-feasting, sleep-and-nutritionally-deprived landscape photographer, there’s enough information in here to ensure that everyone gets a unique, artistically rewarding experience in a country that’s seen a boom in conventional tourism. In fact, in the last few weeks I have recommended this book to many non-photographer friends bound for Iceland. The photos are inspiring and the information is so thoughtfully presented, I feel like I’ve been there already. — Schmoo Theune
