Juxtaposition is to place two concepts, characters, ideas, or places near each other to contrast them.
While I was in Iceland I searched for natural settings to capture the beauty of this majestic and isolated land. I traveled the coastline and ventured into the central mountain areas in search of interesting subjects. While traveling on the far eastern coastline I came into the small town of Djupivogur. I stumbled on to the artwork called Eggin i Gleovik, "The eggs of Merry Bay". The artwork consist of 34 eggs on pedestals, each one representing a bird species that live in the area. As I walked around these sculptures I came to appreciate how they were placed to contrast with the surrounding landscape of water, mountains, and sky. It is always a challenge to find new and interesting things to photograph as a landscape photographer. It takes hours of planning and many miles of travel to find locations of interest. Sometimes they just appear as these sculptures did while I was pursuing other types of subjects.
