This was the first overseas trip on which I got to use the Fuji X-T1.
At Keflavik airport we picked up a rental car, as we had decided it would give us more freedom to explore Iceland. One of the sites we checked frequently before driving was Iceland Road conditions. Snow tyres were a must at this time of the year.
From the airport, we took Route 1 heading inland towards Gulfoss & Geysir through Pingvellir National Park. Flat plateau’s quickly gave way to majestic snow covered mountains.
Here’s some photo’s from en route to Pingvellir.
Having enjoyed a beautiful journey up to Gulfoss we stepped out of the car to howling winds. Wrapped up and with my balaclava replacing my hat that had blown off, we joined the steady stream of tourists on the board walk down to the waterfall. The sound, size and views of Gulfoss were amazing. Here’s a few photographs from different angles.
A few abstract photos at Gulfoss:
15minutes from Gulfoss, on the way back to Reykjavik, is Geysir. The snow around the geysers is melted from the boiling waters and everyone stands around expectantly waiting for hot water and steam to jet from within the earth below. The blue of the erupting water was incredible.
