Arctic Terns

My photography takes a tern for the better. A fleet of arctic terns rest and bake in the Iceland sun. They make a perfect formation on this slab of glacial ice. These are highly aggressive birds and will defend their territory especially in nesting season. These birds feed by diving into the lagoon to fish small trill which they use as part of their mating ritual.

Are you thinking of building your own photo website? There are so many tools to help photographers display and sell their photos online.  Having your own website is like owning a property, you don't have to pay commission to third party online galleries  Siteground are the best webhosts I have used in my 15 years of running icelandaurora.  They are currently having a sale.  Use this LINK to get a massive discount on hosting plans.

50 mm prime

Being the lazy twat that I am, I decided to take my 50mm prime and stick with it. I figured tat we would encounter many different sizes of ice berg, but because we were moving there would be a suitable distance to shoot each with a 50mm. This was one of many shots I took on a Jökulsarlon boat tour with Ronnie Hauks. He advised me to wear strong nylon pants and an underwire were we would be able to pull Arctic char from the deep waters of my underpants.

Boat tours

The amphibious boat tours are a nice way to get to parts of the lagoon unseen from the shore. The trip is about 40 minutes. Unfortunately the boat can be full in busy seasons and this means it is difficult to move around and get photos from different angles.
