Our 2015 Iceland workshop was bestowed with wonderful weather, a delightful group of people, and the always incredible landscapes that make this place a photographer’s paradise. For example, take the image above of the often visited and photographed Seljalandsfoss waterfall, this was my first opportunity to see a sunset there and it was spectacular.
The early morning view of the ice on this southern coast beach was just as wonderful.
It is mesmerizing to watch the large (and small) chunks of ice that have broken off the nearby glacier, move slowly through the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon on their way to the sea. Their shapes and stripes are always varied and changing.
Another morning on the black sand beach offered a different view of the ice as fog diffused the sunlight above.
Of course, the highlight of a fall trip to Iceland has to be the opportunity to see the northern lights and we were very fortunate to have clear skies and an active aurora during our trip. If you haven’t seen the northern lights in person, it is one of those spectacles that is literally jaw-dropping and I wholeheartedly recommend that you make the effort to see them yourself. I like this image below because the “Big Dipper” makes an appearance in the center of the sky over the Jökulsárlón lagoon.
