Default Iceland Photo Trip Pics....

Finally back in the States and found a bit of time to start looking thru my photo files, over 1600 images. Iceland is truly a magical place. This time of year Sunrise is 10am and Sunset is 4pm. The Sun stays low in the sky, maybe up 20 degrees from the horizon. That makes for ideal light conditions all day long. You do have a lot of wind to contend with, rarely did we have winds under 20mph. We got caught in a bad gale storm driving to our next Hostel encountering 40-50mph crosswinds on an icy road in a high profile Commuter type Bus. That was a scary white knuckle trip for sure. At the Hostel that night Management came around looking for the owner of a white vehicle that was getting blown down towards the lagoon with gusts from 60-80mph. If you visit Iceland know that the weather will dictate your schedule.

With so many images I will go and post sort of chronologically as I get time. Here's a few to start and will periodically post more.

Another shot from the Lagoon before the Big Blow. You can see the debris cloud coming full of blowing Snow and Dust.

So call me crazy........ The Icebergs in the Lagoon eventually empty in to the Ocean at what's known as Ice Beach. In preparation for this trip I told to bring waders. To capture the icebergs and the moving water you have to get out in that nearly frozen water among chunks of ice the size of washers, refrigerators and cars. Your head is on a swivel watching for Ice cutting you off behind you and rogue waves sweeping your camera gear away. I have a bunch of shots from here that are interesting, hope it's not redundant for you.....
