During our tours we promise at least 35 distinct shooting opportunities, and we usually go well beyond that. Some locations need 4 hours to get the best images, while others can deliver interesting images in less than 30 minutes.

The images below are taken at each of the 128 shooting opportunities during out 2016 tour which included the 3 bonus days. The gallery shows just one image per stop.

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

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.
