This year’s Iceland photography tour finished!

The 2018 Iceland photography tour went ahead late in September, visiting the rocky, mountainous Snaefellsnes peninsula, on Iceland’s west coast, north of Reykjavik.

Wind, rain - and sunshine

As usual, we had a fair dose of wind and rain, but also as usual the bad weather was interspersed with good spells of sunshine that enabled us to do some great, stormy photography of surf-wracked cliffs, as well as beautiful mountains and waterfalls.

Northern Lights

OK, so I accept that getting a Northern Lights display can be pretty hit and miss. Mostly miss, actually. However, on day 2 the Icelandic Met Office’s website forecast a high aurora activity, which should translate into great Northern Lights. Cue a huge bank of cloud that took out any view that might have been possible.

However, the next day, with just a ‘moderate’ aurora forecast, we were treated to clear skies and one of the best displays I’ve seen in quite a while, all with the snowy peaks of Snaefellsjökull as a backdrop. It was all quite sublimes.

Glacial snow and ice

Clearly, winter is coming early to Iceland this year, and that was quite apparent in the colder than usual temperatures that already had many of the inland roads closed with snow.

We were still able, however, on our final day to head up toward Langjökull Glacier, Iceland’s second largest ice-cap. Up in the mountains we found ourselves stomping around in fresh snow and driving through a short, sharp blizzard. The result was some terrific, snowy landscape photography - not just distant snow-capped mountains, but snow all around.
