Iceland...the Land of Fire and Ice. It's every landscape photographer's dream to go there at least once in their lifetime. I've always thought of Iceland as ultimate paradise for landscape photographers where you have opportunity to photograph countless waterfalls, mountains, fjords, volcanoes, and last but not least, the elusive Aurora Borealis.
The trip was meticulously planned back in July 2017. Several itinerary options were carefully planned to visit as many locations as possible in the whole of Iceland. To maximize our experience, I've roped in the services of a travel agent who is very familiar with Iceland. Hours of research was done through website information and sharing of experiences from friends who have been to Iceland, to ensure success of this trip. The trip date was selected to capitalize on the three public holidays during that period.
This is my 4th photography trip that I have successfully arranged, after Photography Trip to South Island New Zealand in August 2016 (7 participants), Photography Trip to Bromo, East Java, Indonesia in April 2018 (11 participants) and Family-cum-Photography Trip to North Island, New Zealand in August 2018.
Participants (L to R):
I've included some write-ups on the locations that were visited are (please click on the hyperlink to access my blog pages): Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Hraunfossar, Reynisjara & Vik, Solheimasandur, Strokkur Geysir, Eldhraun Lava Fields, Fjallsarlon, Jokusarlon, Diamond Beach, Stokksnes Vestrahorn, Godafoss, Hverir, Hvitserkur, Kirkjufellsfoss and Reykjavik. We have managed to cover a total distance of 2,648km during the 10-day road trip!
This was the poster for the trip, and advertisement was only to a closed group of photographers.
The trip's logo was designed by El'Arief Mohd Khair, one of my New Zealand 2016's participants.
The logo was also embroidered on our trip's T-shirt for the participants to use during the trip.
