This year I entered my photographs in a couple of competitions and I feel extremely honored that I received one or two prizes in most of these contests. I am the most excited about the awards that were announced last week in Mexico City at the prize giving ceremony of the Por el Planeta wildlife, nature and conservation photography competition.

My image of the Hverfjall crater titled "Lunar landscape" (Iceland, 2011) has won a 2nd prize in the Wild Habitat category, selected from 28.578 photographs taken by 2949 photographers from 88 countries.

My photograph about the Eyjafjallajökull volcano titled "Eruption!" (Iceland, 2010) has been presented as highly commended image in the portfolio book of the Por el Planeta competition.

Since 2005, we have traveled together as a team, constantly being on the move to explore and photograph landscapes and wildlife, with special interest in the Nordic countries. Our projects capture different parts of the "Cap of the North", in a never-ending search for surprising scenes and the magic light that is so characteristic of this region. It is the desire to get back to our roots — to live with nature that inspires us to create the images that we do.

We are members of The Photo Society, a group of contributing photographers for National Geographic Magazine.
