Christopher Tung, born and raised in Melbourne, is a landscape and travel photographer.
Chris’ love of travel and adventure has taken him to many inspiring places for his photography, from the great modern cities to some of the most amazing national parks and hiking trails. However, it is in the outdoors, where he draws his deepest influences. Carrying a camera with him on every adventure, he is able to capture the magnificent wonder and rugged beauty of nature.
From the photographer:
Looking for the next place to explore on foot, it became obvious there was no better country than Iceland.
The first morning of our hike, we woke to thick heavy clouds overhead and knew we were in for a wet hard trek up the mountains of Iceland.
The drizzle and fog was unrelenting, but only added to the mysterious beauty of the volcanic landscape.
This photo was taken on the ascent up the Fimmvörðuháls trail. It shows the nature reserve’s mossy terrain begin to transition to snow, then basalt volcanic rock.
It was the last of the undulating hills before a steep climb to the top, which was over 1,000 meters above sea level.
