roaming west *iceland*

20 March 2014

After a wonderful two nights in Reykjavik we headed back out into the countryside, with us an additional traveller. Our coffee date with my husband’s cousin in London the week before had resulted in his spontaneous decision to join us for the last few days in Iceland. With room in the car and no accommodation yet booked to enable flexibility around the Northern Lights, we were ecstatic to welcome him into the adventure. Lo and behold, the previously booked-out Hotel Búðir that I had earmarked had two rooms become available. Proof that sometimes loose or even no plans can result in the best tangents in travels. It was a really special time for us to roam around, laugh, hug each other in the cold, take photos, do silly poses, eat good food and talk with our beloved cousin. A precious few days that we treasure.

I took less photos on this part of our trip as I got what we termed landscape photography fatigue (!!), but it was also perfect in that I just enjoyed the walking, playing, laughing in the snow, jumping in the grass and sitting down to drink in every aspect of the wonderful moments. Memories locked in the heart, mind and all the senses.

    I have enjoyed all your wonderful images of Iceland and these too are fantastic. It is so easy to try to capture everything and missing appreciating those special moments. It looks as if you manage to achieve both on this trip. Sarah x

    Another beautiful collection of photos, especially the pony and goats! And I love that you linked back to that jumping shot. It’s favorite of mine. I am so happy for you that you had this wonderful adventure and had the bonus of the cousin joining you. Well done!

    Ah the light in your photos is so beautiful. What a magical place, it is doubtful that I will ever make it to that part of the world, it is so appreciated that you are willing to share your experience. Family time creates good memories. Happy for you. Kim

    What a stunning landscape. It reminds me of Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland which inspired a lot of new work for me. It clearly inspired you too. Thanks for sharing!

    So, when are you going to shoot a short film? Your photos can be breathtaking, a story in every snap.

    I just can’t get over the beauty of these photos! I studied theatre in Paris with an Icelandic actress, and I’ve always wanted to go over and visit her…maybe one day I will! That desire is even stronger now, after looking at these photos!!
