Summer Night trip
Time for some colour on an Icelandic Summer night!
I had promised myself some 135mm Magic Cloth for a while. Long exposure telephoto is fun!! Things move across the frame quickly so you don’t need a super long exposure for a long exposure effect. To achieve a 30 second exposure I used a 6 stop Neutral Density filter. I lost my step up ring, so I had to hold the filter with one hand at the front of my lens.
Taken on a Summer photo tour in Iceland. This was the second evening on a 4 day North Iceland camping trip in June 2015. The mountain peaks are called Hraundrangi and you can see them in the Öxnadalur valley. The Öxnadalur valley is a beautiful valley to drive through with a few stopping places where you can observe some Icelandic waterfalls. For this shot we were in Marshland. The next stop was Akureyri and then onto Godafoss waterfall.
Long Summer tours are a great way to explore the North and Highlands of Iceland. You can enjoy our tours with Hotels or Camping in tents. Camping saves you loads and keeps your locations flexible with the possibility of avoiding bad/ boring weather.
Photo tours which include the Öxnadalur valley.

Five days to photograph the best of South Iceland. Many top photo locations each day with overnight stays in great places for Northern lights photography.
Three days to capture the best of Iceland’s South Coast and Glacier lagoons with opportunities for ice caves and Vestrahorn mountain.
