Lubos Capcara’s winning #Nature photo from Iceland.

Sigöldugljúfur, also known as the Valley of Tears, is an awe-inspiring world of volcanic landscapes awash in colorful flora, cascading waterfalls and glacier blue rivers. Lubos shares that “I have a lot of landscape photos but this one is, in my opinion, one of a few that got the raw nature feeling. It was my first time visiting Iceland and it’s hard to imagine a better place to shoot landscapes. It’s so diverse and otherworldly. I have to go back sometime.” Lubos also notes that you’ll need a “proper 4×4 car to get there but it’s really worth it.” We absolutely agree!
