Iceland My trip in july 2016

Iceland in July means light for almost 24 hours. So if the weather is kind to you, it's possible to take photographs whenever you want.

My trip startet in Reykjavik, which I left right after landing. I drove to the Þingvellir National Park and was able to shot my first waterfalls - Öxarárfoss, Gullfoss and Bruarfoss

After that I drove westward to Vesturland. There were beautiful fjords and coasts...

... and what else - other waterfalls. Here you see the famous Kirkjufellsfoss and behind the Kirkjufell mountain.

I also spied a lost shipwreck, which I wanted to explore with my drone. It was more than 2000m out in the sea and I was a little bit afraid of flying this distance but I did it!

At the beach in Búðir I started to make new experiences with a glass sphere.

I also met some new animal friends like this guy ...

After Vesturland i drove south and took the ferry to Vestmannaeyjar, a little island about 30 minutes from the Mainland. The only reason to go there was to see puffins.

The next few days I spent in Suðurland, the south part of Iceland. One day I was very lucky with the weather. You'll guess what you can photograph there. You're right - waterfalls. There you have the Skógafoss with rainbows and the Seljalandsfoss, where you can go behind the scene.

One day early in the morning I walked for about an hour on a very boring country road to find this lost planewreck.

What you'll often see in Iceland are beautiful Icelandic horses. I could not get enough of them.

My last days i drove through the south part of Austurland. Here you can find some glaciers ...

With my drone i flew over the Svinafellsjökull and also took some shots from above.

And here is the famous Jökulsarlon. I spent three days waiting for a bit of blue colour in the sky. And I got it!

I also wanted to do something mystical and so I took some long exposure at the black beach with some ice blocks.

On my way back to Reykjavik/Keflavik I hoped for better weather because I wanted to fly over the Fjaðrárgljúfur. This is what I got.

After more than 3000 km driven, 1500 photos taken and 3 hours with my drone I've made my final conclusion about my 12 days in Iceland - I will come back! There is so much more to see and every season could bring new impressions.
