Photo workshop Dyrholaey
Cotton Ball Sky
We had an amazing photo shoot at Drholaey on the return leg of our 5 day Winter Workshop. The area was suffering with heavy rain on day 1 when we passed through, but we were rewarded with incredible clouds on our last day of the photo workshop.
Landscape photography becomes a very different game when you switch from wide angle to telephoto. This image was taken with my Canon EF 135mm f/1.4. It was all about placing the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks in a good position at the bottom of the frame to let the clouds dominate the space above.
The famous sea stacks at Vik are often the subject of our Winter workshops, because Winter sunsets can occur right amongst the stacks. Most of our suggested long photo tours will include Vik and Reynisdrangar although it is also possible to visit the area on our South Coast day tour.
There are places in Iceland that make you feel like a visitor to another planet. Iceland’s Lava Fields are frequent in the landscape in a thick strip of land through the middle from The North East to the KEF international airport.
Rauðisandur beach is on the South side of Iceland’s Westfjords and is south facing. Rauðisandur is also spelled Rauðasandur and features “Red Sand”.
Lóndrangar are volcanic plugs on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. These tough basalt rock pinnacles are the remains of an ancient crater. This area offers some of the best views of Snæfellsjökull Glacier on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
