    Arrival at Kirkjufell Mountain

    November 6, 2016 in Iceland

    We have just arrived at what was to be our first location of the day and the weather is the worst we have experienced so far. Tony says, "These are the worst conditions I've ever driven in." Very astute is Tony ... he doesn't miss a trick!

    We are parked next to the lake below the waterfalls which are a short walk from here ... we can just about see them. The car is shaking from the wind, the rain is horizontal so we'll be sitting here for a while to see if things improve. What do you think?Read more

    That Mountain Again

    February 18 in Iceland

    When we arrived we were entering the twilight zone as the sunset had finished. What we mean by this is the sun was below the horizon because it was far too cloudy for a sunset.

    The tide was in so there was an opportunity for a reflection if the water was calm and the grey skies offered a great contrast against the snow covered mountain. We found a suitable parking spot and headed off with tripods and cameras but without the strange hats and footwear. Are we old codgers on a photography outing? We hope we're not!

    Rob thinks he's got some great photos here but Tony's not so sure so we'll all have to wait to find out how it went. When we went back to the car more people had arrived to catch the very last of the light and you can see just how popular Dacia Duster 4x4 cars are here. There are millions of them!

    Kirkjufellsfoss - Take 2

    November 7, 2016 in Iceland

    We awoke to grey skies once more so decided on a more leisurely start in the hope things would brighten up. When we arrived at the small car park it was once again blowing a gale with the now standard fitting of horizontal rain, but at least the view from the car was quite a bit clearer than yesterday. After a while we decided to brave the elements and at least get a photograph rather than leaving with nothing. First Tony, then Rob ventured to the left of the falls to look back towards the mountain which is the classic shot for this location ... except for the grey skies and driving rain, of course.

    We're now back at our accommodation to sort ourselves out for the afternoon and will be exploring the Berserkjahraun lava field.

    Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall

    September 27, 2017 in Iceland

    Unser erstes Ziel am heutigen Tag war mal wieder ein Wasserfall mit dem gleichnamigen Berg im Hintergrund. Hier reihten wir uns in die Masse der unzähligen Fotografen um ein schönes Bild zu schissen!

    Am Rande des Berges knüpften wir auch erste Bekanntschaften zu den isländischen Pferden!

    Kirkjufells

    July 4, 2017 in Iceland

    Visited Kirkjufells, one of the most picturesque areas in the country. Then we hit the road for a long drive to the north. It was long, but the 1 am sunset was worth it. Found a random campground just to crash at for a few hours before getting back on the road the next day.

    Kirkjufell

    November 12, 2016 in Iceland

    We arrived in Iceland early in the morning after a short “red eye” flight from Dulles. It didn’t take long for me to realize that the airline lost my luggage. We filed all of the necessary paperwork before picking up the car and heading to our first stop.

    Kirkjufell was over 2 hours away from Reykjavik. This iconic mountain is considered one of the most scenic and photographed spots in Iceland. The weather was cold and rainy which made capturing that perfect photography impossible. We still enjoyed walking around and getting our first taste of all that Iceland has to offer.Read more
