Story behind the photo
My girlfriend and I were hiking the trail from Landmannalaugar to Þorsmörk in Iceland this summer when we first heard, and then saw, this group of horses galloping towards us. The giant ice cap of Mýrdalsjökull and a volcanic crater are in the background. I only had the chance to take a couple of shots before they were gone, but I was really pleased with the way the image came out. There's a brooding energy in the landscape and the clouds, and the way the horses seem to flow up the slope, that I really like.

I work in Wind Power Operations, heading up the Continuous Improvement team. In Operations, we're responsible for maintaining our offshore wind farms to ensure they are ready to produce power when the wind is blowing. My team and I work with the management and technicians at our sites to find better and safer ways to carry out the maintenance. Wind Power has grown rapidly since joining DONG Energy four years ago, so I've had a few different operational and commercial management roles -- and every time I've been impressed by the energy and commitment of my colleagues.
