Iceland August 2015 – Day 2

Day 2 was not much a far as the weather but a good day for photography in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. An area with a diverse landscape of fjords, dramatic volcanos, sheer sea cliffs, beaches and lava fields.

Here are some images from day 2. Click on the image for larger rendition.

Iceland – August 2015 Day 1

It was unfortunate that we had very poor internet service this trip to Iceland hence no posts.  This was a small group photo tour to the Snaefelsness Peninsula and the Highlands.  The trip  was 11 days with 10 of them rainy and very windy – this is Iceland after all.  We arrived at a decent hour in Keflavik and on to the car rental.  The morning was spent organizing cell phone SIM cards, drinks and snacks.  We had breakfast at a quaint little breakfast pleace in Reykjavik. Walked about town and then drove on to a fishing village Hellnar and checked in to the hotel.

A brief trip along the Southern coast before dinner and bed.  Note that this and most if the images in subsequent posts lack great skies.
