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 Goðafoss 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.
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.

I only am just getting back into the “everyday swing of life” after some magical travels – with Iceland being the highlight. We had an absolutely WONDERFUL tour and time in Iceland – we just loved it all and Olgeir was truly fantastic. Just perfect for us. We visited...

Roughly translated, Vatnjökull is the “Lake Glacier” and it is not only the biggest glacier in Iceland, but it is Europe’s largest piece of ice that is more than 300 square miles.
In 2010 the whole world heard about Iceland. A volcanic eruption under the Eyjafjalljökull Glacier sent a colossal plume of ash South wards towards Europe and the UK.
