Melancholia is a time-lapse shortfilm shot in Iceland during the summer solstice of 2013, using modified infrared Sony DSLR camera.
During 12 days I explored and photographed both the South Coast and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, looking for the best scenes to represent in infrared.
Direct sunlight, green grass and blue skies are a must in infrared photography, and are even better if combined, something not easy to find in Iceland.
I want to thank Quique Touriño for helping me in the hard process of developing the infrared pictures.
Shot with Sony A65 + Zeiss 16-35mm + Sony 70-200mm

Oman is a place as surprising as it is unfamiliar. When the traveler explores its diverse landscape, formed by deserts, mountains, oasis and virgin beaches, he realises why this place is known as the Pearl of Arabia.
One thing that really stands out above all else in Oman is the kindness and closeness of its people and the authenticity of its culture.
