Iceland is a land of extremes. Active volcanos right next to ancient glaciers and many waterfalls scattered along the landscape. There are so many sights to see during the day and night. If you go during a season when night happens, and the weather cooperates you might be lucky enough to catch the aurora.
There was no way I was able to see everything I wanted to see in a week. I’m hoping to return here very soon, and this time I’ll pack a pair of hiking boots. All the exploring I did while in Iceland, I did with a pair of comfy slip on Vans, which weren’t even close to being appropriate footwear.
The Mighty Waterfall
According to legend there’s Viking treasure buried behind this waterfall. With the amount of water falling, good luck trying to find out if it’s true or not. It produces so much spray, I had the hardest time trying to keep water off my lens.
The Ring Road
How convenient is it that you can follow this road in one direction and see almost all of Iceland and end up right back where you started? There’s waterfalls, glaciers, volcanos, there’s stunning landscape around every bend just waiting to reveal itself.
A Break from Landscapes
A small city rich in culture. The city is very friendly and almost no crime is present here. I’ll never forget taking the elevator up the Hallgrimskirkja and getting a birds eye view of the city. Views of the port and colorful rooftops as far as the eye can see from up there.
Iceland was my first photography trip I had ever taken. It was a little intimidating going to where a lot of landscape photographers dream of going and not having any previous experience. It wasn’t so much the buttons and dials, because I knew that already, it was how to capture the feel of Iceland that intimidated me.
It wasn’t all that scary though because I met up with my friend who is also an amateur photographer. We experienced this magical land together and captured some amazing shots. It’s hard to get bad photos in Iceland.
