Midnight Sun












The longest part of the trip around Iceland was from Snaefellsnes in the northwest to Lake Myvatn in the northeast. This trip normally takes about 6 hours by car but took us about 16 hours because there was just so much jaw-dropping beauty to stop and photograph along the way. We arrived at our destination at about 1:30 AM. The sun never set completely, and for the last two hours of the trip we were treated to spectacular colors and landscapes such as these.

Amazing photography - the place itself is magical and I bet it made your work easier :) You captured it's beauty. Where will you travel next? You should visit Portugal. My city, Lisbon, might be humble and small but it has the most unique light in Europe. Hugs from Portugal

I love your work – and I was thrilled to see your images of Iceland! They probably don't look distinct to most people, but I instantly thought of northwest Iceland. By any chance, were you anywhere near Vatnsdalsvegur?

The soft pastel tones in this photos captures me. For me it would be a nightmare to drive 16 hrs. ;) But I'm glad you did, because of the beautiful photos you brought us from your drive to Mývatn.
