Field research in Iceland is conducted from a many number of places. One of them is a small town in the far north, Raufarhöfn. Scientist living and working from this town will also visit RIF Weather station just a little bit further north. It’s just a spec in the landscape, a large antenna and some boxes attached to a frame. The equipment continuously measures wind, rain, snow and sun, the elements that make our weather.

This image is created for the project Touch base, arctic solargraphy. A global ‘science meets art’ photography project I conducted during 2019-2020.

If you buy a fine art print or limited edition of this image, 10% of the profit will be donated to APECS. This is an organisation which supports early career scientists in their research. Many members of APECS helped me in creating the images in the Touch base project. We all depend on future science. By donating some of my earnings I can do something back to support them.
