During this workshop we will explore the beautiful south of Iceland. I have tried to time the workshop to enable us to capture some autumn colours, both on the ground and amongst the few small trees. If we're lucky there may also be the chance of photographing the Northern Lights.
We begin by exploring Reykjavik and the Reykjaness Peninsula in the south west. From here we drive east towards Selfoss, from which we photograph several impressive waterfalls and geothermal areas. We will also have two days in which to attempt a day trip into the spectacular highlands of Landmannalaugar with its multi-coloured rhyolite mountains in the shadow of Hekla volcano. We then travel further east to the town of Vik, from which we photograph the amazing basalt sea stacks of Reynisdrangar, spectacular sea cliffs and black sandy beaches. We will also visit the famous Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. From Vik we head further east to the Skaftafell National Park, the glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon and the sea cliffs at Vestrahorn. We have two days here before heading back for one more day exploring the rocky coast and geothermal areas of the Reykjaness Peninsula.
We will travel in two modified 4X4 vehicles during this workshop.
