During this tour run by iAmIceland.is I had two DSLRs with me which were used for the majority of the images that I took, however the iPhone made it easy to do panoramas as well as many walk around images as well as videos. Here are some samples.

2017.08.11 Westman Islands

This was part of an incredible tour organized by iAmIceland.is.The Vestmannaeyjar (Westman) Island archipelago just off the south coast of Iceland, and a very beautiful location. The volcanic archipelago includes the island of Surtsey which came into existence with a year long eruptions in 1963.

Our visit included a tour of the island which centred around the 1973 eruption of the Eldfell volcano on the main island, including a visit to a museum which told the story of the eruption.

A visit to a puffin colony on one of the islands was definitely a  highlight, and included a demonstration of the technique that is used to catch puffins.

2017.08.10 Reykjavik Urban

Reykavik is a beautiful, approachable, welcoming city. With a free day in town before a tour which would be mostly beautiful landscapes, a day doing urban image captures in the city was a lot of fun. This time around I spent some time on candid photos of people, and some time with bicycles.

This was part of a great tour organized by iamiceland.is.

2017.08.20 Summer Auroras

Part way through a summer tour run by iamiceland.is, no one expected that with only three hours of 'dark' each night, that we had any chance of seeing auroras. Nature was very kind and we had an almost three hour show that went from horizon to horizon, changed and danced, and provided a full range of colours.
