As I continue editing my photographs from Iceland, I am amazed at just how many things we were able to squeeze into every day because of the expertise of our guides at Focus on Nature. Not only were they enthusiastic about taking advantage of every waking moment, they knew the country like the back of their hands and were flexible willing to figure out how to make events happen on a moments notice.

Getting out and exploring at first light (the sun was only setting for about 5 hours a night) was rewarding as we found a group of absolutely stunning Icelandic horses on the third day in the field. Throughout the countryside we looked for new ways to see the landscape including reflections, depth of field details and textures in rocks water and ice.

    Beautiful pictures! I like the ‘horse parts’ and the ice patterns a lot. Wanna go to Iceland myself one day. Iceland is one of the countries were you can take a picture with your eyes closed and then still it will be awesome.
