Well this not one of my best quality shots, but want to try and convey the vastness of Vatnajökull Glacier. We drove by it almost all day, but that's hard to capture in a photo. I shot this @ 200mm, handheld. The Iceberg in the foreground is the size of a 2 story house.

I've been asked if we were able to capture the Aurora. The answer is yes and this is my first view and thought it was just the most awesome thing I ever seen. But at the time I didn't know what I would witness the next night. But you are going to have to wait a little longer for that.

INCREDIBLE pics - THANK YOU for posting!

Worked with a guy years ago (retired military) that called on military bases pretty much all over the world in a "sales" capacity. He told me once that Iceland was one of the MOST beautiful places he's ever visited!

It was one of the places I could have been stationed when I was in the Navy back in the late '60's - Keflavick, as I remember? Or maybe it was Rekavick? Was a communications station.

THANKS again for the pics!

Regards,

If you like waterfalls, you will love Iceland. I did learn that foss translates to falls. This is Skogafoss.....

Mountain Ranges in Iceland are not like here where you have foothills and a gradual climb then maybe a peak. Mountains here are abrupt, from sea level straight up, really gives them a majestic look. You won't find a Mountain that you can drive to the top.
Case in Point......... Vestrahorn Mountain Range (seven image pano)

Awesome. What kind of camera ? Any recommendations for a somewhat beginner ? My last camera was an Olympus Micro 4/3 - its outdated and doesnt do well trying to catch wildlife from a boat - whales etc off of Cape cod .

The lingering sunsets and sunrises were definitely something i will not forget from being there. Sunset was @ about 11:30 when i was there. One night after my wife went to bed i climbed Hverfjall to take some pictures at about 11:00. I didn't go down until after 1:00 am just watching the colors change and even then the sunset was kind of still going on. It was a new experience for me. Very cool place.

Did you drive the whole ring road?
