Iceland: The South Coast

It’s been an ‘interesting’ week for blogs. Lot’s of folks came out of their shells and drew lines in the sand. Friendships ended. Battlelines were formed. Bombs were dropped. There was more conflict on Twitter and Facebook than Trump could ever hope to have with DPRK (let’s hope that remains true). But, when all is said an done, we just do all of this for the love of photography, so that is what I’m going back to right now.

Back in February I took a trip with my wife to Iceland, to tour the South Coast along Route One. Possibly the most frequented route by photographers in the World right now. I’ve been to Iceland twice before, but never to the South Coast, to the honeypots. Was it a successful trip? Judge for yourself, I enjoyed it though. Was it expensive….oh by golly yes.

What follows are my pick of the photos from the trip. Some you’ve seen before on Social Media, some you haven’t, but all collated here. One or two are firm favourites, real keepers, others I have yet to make my mind up on. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
