Popular landscape photography locations can be a bit of conundrum in some sense: they're likely popular because they offer great images, but that reputation means it can be difficult to produce original work from them.

Iceland is certainly no stranger to landscape photographers. In particular, you've likely seen Kirkjufell is countless photos. Of course, the frequency of some landscape appearing in photographs doesn't change its inherent beauty, but it does make it harder for your shot of it to stand out. In this video, Andrew Marr heads to the famous location in search of a more unique image than the standard photo you see that frames the mountain on the right and the waterfall on the left. It's an interesting and beneficial exercise, and I really appreciated some of the shots he came away with, particularly since I've seen this landmark thousands of times.
