AS Britain begins to recover from the Beast From The East, these amazing aerial images have revealed the arctic beauty of Iceland.
Stunning pictures show the intricate patterns the rivers make along the ice and snow as well as the dark roads that weave their way through the blanket of snow.
Other striking shots show someone standing in the middle of a huge glacier, the snowy mountains and tourists struggling through the frozen land.
The remarkable photographs were taken in Iceland by National Key Account Manager and photographer Tim Nevell (45) from Worthing, UK.
“Aerial photography is a whole new world of compositions and seeing our planet from above is just amazing,” he said.
“I try to keep the scene as simple as possible to share the beauty from above, I have been travelling to Iceland since 2013 and wanted to share the beauty of the country with as many people as possible.
“Winter in Iceland is the best place for photography as the golden hour light lasts all day. Landscape photography allows me to feel at one with nature.
“Aerials show the diverse Icelandic landscape, beauty is all around but sometimes you cannot see it until looking down.”
Red and amber weather alerts continue across the UK as Storm Emma joined the ‘Beast from the East’ to cause snow and travel chaos.
Thousands of schools are closed in south Wales, southern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Tim took the photographs with a Nikon D610, Nikon D850 and a DJI Mavic Pro drone. He explained the problems he ran into.
“Wind, snow, rain and hail are all things I needed to overcome, and shoot in between, trying to get the right light / composition is challenging when flying a drone,” he said.
“There is generally a positive reaction with people remarking how amazing the landscape looks.”
