Iceland – the sea

Being an island, Iceland is naturally surrounded by the sea. I didn't use to appreciate the power and beauty of the sea for quite a while. Probably because I consider myself more of a mountain person and common 'beach vacation' is just not really my thing. However, since I moved to Norway, I look at the big water in a different way. I see a great natural force and beauty of it and a distant horizon which reveals the approaching storms... It can get even scary sometimes.

This time, I had a chance to experiment a bit with Gustavo's super-dark filter, which allowed to capture different moods of the salty water.

 

To be honest, we passed through the Skarðsvík Beach and Londrangar by accident, as we decided to have a longer drive around after seeing Kirkjufellsfoss the previous day. That's what happens when you have to change all the plans on top of time because the weather decided to turn bad in the direction you wanted to go. And just like this, you encounter amazing places on almost every corner of this country! Isn't this incredible?

Another unexpected wonder of Iceland - beach nearby Eyrarbakki. Completely random direction. Don't even ask me why we went there...

Reynisfjara and Dyrhólaey were possibly the most crowded attractions we visited this trip. And with a good reason - we passed there twice (!) and spent several hours shooting the waves crashing on the rocks. Very hypnotising...
