Photo Tour Log

Here we describe a handful of the tours already completed to show what conditions can be expected during different seasons. Even in a single day with a normal driving range we can experience a variety of weather systems. Iceland’s special geology with it’s mountains, glaciers, coastlines and sand plains all within close proximity can create micro climates. On a multi-day tour with many locations the weather conditions are always varied. In any cases it is the edge or aftermath of storms that give us the best pictures.

January 2017 – South Coast & Jökulsarlon

Thick snow clouds is the same as pulling that thick duvet over yourself at the end of the day. The storm persisted into the morning and I actually delayed our start towards the Ice Beach because the wind meters …

August 2010 Landmannalaugar

We departed from Reykjavik and headed towards the interior to a geothermal area called Landmannalaugar, the natural gem in the southern highlands of Iceland.

August 2015 – 2 day Jökulsarlon late schedule

Summer days are long, so I timed this 2 day tour with a 14.00 start. This early August tour was along the South Coast as far as Jökulsarlon on day 1 and back along the South Coast to Reykjavik on day 2. Sunset was around 10 pm at Jökulsarlon and the plan was to shoot...

March 2015 – photoshoot at Buðir

It was the last day of our 5 day workshop, early February 2016 and we arranged a special early trip to the ice-caves with our regular guides at iceguide. The ice caves have become extremely busy over the last few years and at this point of writing there are 4...

Winter Workshop Dec 2014

This was a 5 day workshop which started and ended with a storm and yet we seemed to be in the eye of the storm for 3 whole days in a fantastic location. For starters, we were lucky to get out of Reykjavik.  We left Reykjavik in 2 jeeps with extra size wheels and met...

3 Summer Nights July 2014

This was a shared tour which was supposed to include 3 nights of shooting and 4 days of camping in the Vatnjökull region of South East Iceland. Checking the weather forecasts on the day of pick up make me change the plans, there was a huge rain system sweeping the...

April 2014 5 day tour

This tour took us to the North of Iceland to catch some Winter waterfalls and the powerful Dettifoss before the big thaw.

May 2014 – 7 day tour

This was a tour which took us around Iceland at a time of the year when Winter turns into Summer, the deep snows melt gently revealing colourful herbs and mosses. Waterfalls are fresh and sparkling with the anticipation of Summer and the newly arrived migratory birds...
