Or Hallgrim’s Church in English. A very unique church in Reykjavik. Photographed by every tourist visiting Iceland. I like the lines I got in this composition but it’s hard to tell what the church really looks like from this picture but that’s where Google comes in It looks like a space ship about to take off.
A small shop at the camp site in Landmannalaugar. I was actually a bit surprised that they had anything out there in the middle of nowhere. It’s actually a really nice camp site with everything you’ll need to stay a week to photograph the area. Something I would like to do someday. We only stayed there one night this time.
This is shot at Jökulsarlon, a glacier lake on Iceland. A very nice place and we were lucky to get some fog when we were there. Vattnajökul, the largest glacier on Iceland goes into this lake and breaks of into icebergs that floats around on the lake. It’s very close to the sea so eventually the icebergs continue through the short river out into the Atlantic ocean. Some icebergs gets washed up on the black sand beach which also makes for some interesting pictures that I will post later.
One of the enjoyment with travelling to Iceland is the driving. I really liked driving around in the rented SUV on the dirt roads up and down mountains and through rivers. We got one flat tire and a broken bearing in a wheel though so I’m not sure our car actually was built for this. We rented a Toyota RAV4 but if we did it again we probably should have rented a even more robust jeep. You will definitely need a four wheel drive car. The road you see on the picture above is actually a good road. This road goes in and out of Landmannalaugar, an amazing drive.
