    Travelling to Stykkishólmur

    November 5, 2016 in Iceland ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Having had a bit of a lie-in after the excitement of the Northern Lights until 1.30am, we had breakfast and set off for our next stop: Stykkishólmur.

    The weather was pretty good and remained dry but we made the mistake of choosing to follow the coast road around the peninsula north west of Sauðárkrókur. It was dirt track all the way and the scenery not as spectacular as yesterday. In fact, most of our journey today was on unsurfaced roads mostly manufactured from pot holes so the drive was long and tiring. No photography today really, except the odd totally uninterested Iceland horse and wide landscape views that simply don't work when squashed onto a camera sensor.

    We've just had a lovely evening meal and picked up some useful locations for photography from our waitress. There should be some good opportunities over the next two days. Fingers crossed for good weather.
