Iceland Landscape Workshop
17th to 27th September 2023 (Sold Out)
20th to 30th September 2024 - Available
During this 10-day workshop we will explore the beautiful south of Iceland. I have tried to time the workshop to enable us to capture some of the spectacular autumn colours, both on the ground and amongst the few small trees. This is also the time of year when snow should cause the least issues, allowing the colours and textures of the unique Icelandic landscape to be seen at their best. 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 far 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, black sandy beaches and hidden canyons. 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 in the far south east corner of Iceland. We then gradually make our way back towards Reykjavik with an overnight stop in Vik and at many other locations along the route. Our final day is spent exploring the west of Iceland.
We will travel in two modified 4X4 vehicles during this workshop, providing plenty of room and the ability to explore the highland F-roads. Even after 15 tours, Iceland remains my favourite destination for landscape photography, as the terrain is so unique.
