Well, Iceland, Scandinavia, and Scotland are generally famous for their icy exteriors; however, in a fresh series of pictures the countries have been lit by rosier hues. The jaw-dropping photographs have been taken by the 26 years old photographer George the Explorer, also known as George Turner. He describes ’20-something British landscape and wildlife photographer exploring the world.

The photographer from Dorset has spent the last two years documenting scenery from some of the wildest places on earth by visiting remote areas of countries in the Northern hemisphere. Therefore, in these pictures the giant-sized beauty of the countryside in these cold climates is shown in a dissimilar light as they are frequently captured in the height of summer. Hence, beautiful deserted lakes, rural villages and craggy mountain tops all features in the striking photographs, taken on Turner’s trusty Nikon 17-35mm f2.8 lens.
