When Icelandic glacial melt-water wends its way out across vast, black-sand river deltas towards the ocean, it interacts with elements such as sulphur and iron, creating colours almost impossible to believe. When viewed from 1500ft above, these braided rivers are truly breath-taking.

Mieke Boynton is an Australian landscape photographer from the beautiful Alpine Valleys of Victoria, Australia. She is well known for her abstract aerial photography, and in 2019, she became the first Australian and first female to win the prestigious Epson International Pano Awards with three of her aerial panoramas. Mieke regularly exhibits her work and thoroughly enjoys teaching photography through workshops and presentations.
