Iceland Top Nine

It seems like you really like my images of #Iceland this year. Who knows, maybe I'll find my way back in 2017.

Kex Hostel

I was only in @Kexhostel in Reykjavik for a few hours to sleep and write while enjoying some delicious tea and breakfast but this place made me feel welcome and relaxed. This man at the desk patiently explained everything I needed to know and politely tolerated my broken Icelandic. What can I say? I'm learning! Be well, Kex! See you next time! . . . #portraitmood #theportraitpr0ject #Earth_portraits #DiscoverPortrait #igpodium_portraits #PortraitPage #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #MeetTheWorld #hostel #wanderlust #5StarHostels #hostellife #guesthouse #reykjavik #BlackandWhite #Acros #bnw

Kirkjufellsfoss

Kirkjufellfoss, Snæfellsnes peninsula, west Iceland. Adjusting to the fixed 35mm f2 lens on my Sony RX1R-ii camera has been a creative challenge. I'm so accustomed to the field of view at 17mm that I walked way too close initially to this thunderous waterfall. Perspective is the key here. With a fixed lens I'm forced out of my normal practices and need to get even more creative. Standing rather far away this time and getting my shoes wet right on the lapping edge of this water I was able to photograph this beautiful scene complete with the full reflection of the mountain.

Snæfellsnes

A gorgeous sunset somewhere on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in western Iceland. My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography and I drove 3 hours in my tiny rented Toyota YoYo all the way up here from Garður on Saturday with the hopes of catching aurora dancing around the Kirkjufell. This is a panorama made from eight 42MP Sony RX1R ii frames stitched together and it's way too wide for IG! I hope you enjoy the photo!. . . #sunset #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #panorama #wide

Svínafellsjökull

❄️ It's currently rather cold outside. I'm snuggly and warm inside with a cup of tea in hand fondly remembering that time I considered hiking on the Vatnajökull glacier (Svínafellsjökull, precisely), came to my senses, and hiked back to the car after taking a few choice photos. Stay warm out there!. . . #iceland #mystopover #DarlingEscapes #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #glacier #hiking #takeahike #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #exploremore #awesomeearth #stayandwander #passionpassport #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision

Kirkjufellsfoss

Kirkjufell (church mountain) and a part of Kirkjufellfoss on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in western Iceland. My friend @kjartan.gudmundur_photography and I drove 3 hours in my tiny rented Toyota YoYo all the way up here from Garður on Saturday with the hopes of catching aurora dancing around the mountain. We set up our cameras and waited for hours in the delightfully cooperative weather and finally got our reward at this beautiful place. We didn't luck out with the cloud cover but given I was only in Iceland for around 55 hours(!!) on this trip I'd say that I got remarkably lucky! This is a frame from a time lapse video I'll share in the future. I hope you enjoy the photo!. . . #nightphotography #longexposureoftheday #amazing_longexpo #ic_longexpo #nightscaper #astrography_ #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe

Arnes, Iceland

One more as onboard the #wowair flight to Iceland for my third journey. I'll be spending the day with my good friend Kjartan tomorrow. 😁. "Around the time that starlight was replacing twilight I got a text from Kjartan asking if I wanted to go on another aurora hunting expedition. I bounced down the long road past the lighthouse, the turnoff for the steam vents, and drove up to Garður. It was around 11:00 that I got to Kjartan’s house and I was getting sleepy so Kjartan offered to drive in his car. I moved a few hundred pounds of camera equipment into his hatchback and off we went again. We drove right back to Reykjanesviti where thirty minutes of stargazing and a lesson on Icelandic curse words occurred. Without warning and mid-icelandic-expletive Kjartan violently swung his camera, attention, and car around to capture what appeared to be a softly glowing puffy cloud. “They have arrived!” Kjartan exclaimed with an adorable Nordic drawl. All of my prediction apps and web sources said that there was a “zero” chance of Northern Lights that night. If this was a zero then a five was likely to make me weep. Kjartan taught me an important lesson by convincing me to go out that night: “The lights… they do what they do. They don’t care about the Internet.” Man, you said a mouthful." . . . #beautifuldestinations #agameoftones #ig_worldclub #earthofficial #earthexperience #global_hotshotz #hotshotz #world_shotz #artofvisuals #worldspotz #earth_deluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #exploremore #awesomeearth #igmasters #stayandwander #passionpassport #Places_wow #exploretocreate #OurPlanetDaily #artsyvision #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment

Skógafoss Waterfall, Iceland

I'm reminiscing about my last trip to Iceland as I navigate my way through airports to return. This image of a solitary girl standing defiantly and, I think, in awe of this powerful waterfall always gives me chills. I hope you enjoy it.. . .

Impulsive Trip to Iceland

✈️️👌I'm doing something impulsive. 😁@Wowair has some cracking good deals on flights and I snagged one for a preposterous weekend getaway! BWI>KEF for $199 r/t. Insanity. I'm so immeasurably fortunate to be able to do this. I've got the Sony RX1R Mk ii (aka ultimate traveler's camera), a change of underwear (@exofficio, natch), and my @66north hat. Let's do this, Iceland! Svifnökkvinn minn er fullur af álum. Góða ferð, skál!. . . #wowair #rx1rii #DarlingEscapes #TravelGram #LoveToTravel #TravelDiary #OpenMyWorld #WhereToFindMe #MyTinyAtlas #moment #iceland #mystopover #visiticeland #stayandwander #passionpassport #exploretocreate #exploremore
