Going to Iceland is a dream for every photographer i guess. My wife was pushing a bit for us to do this journey and the only suitable time has been last December, in the middle of winter. After having a nine hour flight delay and losing one day of our holiday, we finally arrived in Reykjavik on the 20th of December, exhausted and tired. This post is about the first leg of our journey that we spent in Reykjavik and then in the very west of Iceland, an area called "Snæfellsnes"
Reykjavik is a city that we both liked. It's got everything a big city needs but it wasn't too crowded. There were many shops to buy expensive Icelandic woollen clothes and the views you get from the harbour are simply stunning. You look over the sea directly onto a beautiful mountain panorama. The whole city seemed a bit gloomy but I guess that's because we didn't have much sunlight and after rising at 11am, the sun was setting at 3pm already. Also during our stay in the city we had pretty extreme weather with suddenly appearing hailstorms and strong winds which was a quite unique experience for both of us.
