I finally convinced my wife to go to Iceland. We went this past June. She needed convincing because I wanted to camp. She doesn't mind being outdoors but sleeping outside, in a tent, is not her cup of tea. We settled on a rooftop tent. Somehow she felt sleeping on the roof of a car acceptable. LOL
This was our home for the trip. Actually pretty comfortable. Thought it was going to blow over one night in pretty high winds but it held up just like we were told it would. It was a little cramped, especially living out of the car for so many days but we managed. Fortunately, Iceland has full facilities at their public pools and almost every town has one. So we hit the pool about every other day for some relaxation in the hot tub and showers.
We spent 9 days in Iceland. We traveled mostly along the Ring Road but we detoured from it at times. I took a very similar path that Daniel (Qarik) and his family took, except we hit the Fjords in northwest and we also visited the highlands.
Weather was not great. We had two days of relatively clear skies. Only one decent sunset. Although in June, the sun never really sets. It was overcast most days. It rained a little. Never a down poor. Just an annoying mist to drizzle at times. Made shooting a bit more challenging for me. Especially since I forgot all my ND filters. It would have been nice to have been able to drag my shutter to get some movement in the clouds and water. Fortunately, I did have my CPL filter so I was able to stop down the light a little bit. Whatcha gonna do.
I'm horrible at remember the names of places I visit and Iceland, with it's impossible name to spell and pronounce, wasn't any different. So unfortunately I won't be given you guys anything more than numbers for labels on the photos. ;-)
Well... enough typing and onto the photos.
