A photography tour to Iceland

Iceland photo tour 2019

Dates: 7-12 September 2019

Location: Reykjavik and Iceland’s southwest.

So how did it all go?

Iceland was very much Iceland once again: wild, rugged, and delivering up some of the world’s most stunning continental-sized landscapes, all to both inspire and frustrate the committed photographer!

It also delivered the usual mix of sunshine, wind, rain, rainbows and dramatic lighting angles with which to set off those amazing landscapes.

Subjects, as planned, included the geysirs northeast of Reykjavik, along with the might Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss Falls, and the beautifully dainty waterfall at Hraunfossar. Along the coast we treated to the rugged cliffs of Dyrholaey Island and the iconic conical mountain that is Kirkjufells, as well as the lava cliffs of Arnastapi. Deep inland we were able to climb right up into the mountains, to the very edge of the Langjökull Glacier, Iceland’s second largest ice-cap.

The one subject that we did not manage to capture was the Northern Lights. Not only did we have cloudy skies every night, but the Iceland Met Office wasn’t even able to forecast any aurora activity. So the skies were all quiet during our stay. That was the one disappointment, neatly illustrating just how fickle those Night Lights can be.
