Iceland

After an intese 17 days of travel around the coastline of Iceland, I’m home again and settling back into the second half of spring here on Prince Edward Island. Now begins the battle to organize, sort, process, back up and start sharing the results. If you wish not to wait until I prepare future blog posts, I have been sharing images faster on Facebook and Google Plus.

Iceland Sunset

Today’s Image – An Everlasting Iceland Sunset

There is a significant difference between the north and south coast of Iceland, but the slow moving sun would start to set around 7pm and last until 1am — only to rise again shortly after. There was little need to feel rushed with the exception of the rapidly changing weather. With almost 24 hours of daylight and the sun only dipping below the horizon line for about 90 minutes, I was getting half of my sleep in the back of the van between locations. It was an interesting adjustment to come home to a night sky and see darkness for the first time in over 2 weeks.

Here is a very rough outlined map of the route and the amount of coverage (driving) we were able to see over the 2 week period. I have so much more to share.

    Great tour! Going on my first Iceland photo-adventure end of July.
    What would be your must photograph places for a 6 day 4x drive in Iceland?

      If you’re making your own itinerary, any place at all will be fine. I could have spent a week at any single location.
