Took a trip to Iceland last week with my girlfriend Claire and family. It was refreshing to have a short break from commissioned work and the studio job, to get out and spend a few days shooting landscapes in this beautiful country. We had some very strong winds on some of the days and had to hold on to the tripod tight. I was also slightly under prepared to photograph subtle northern lights behind the clouds, shooting in pitch dark conditions and focusing manually. I would love to visit again some day, perhaps in a Spring month and see the south and east coasts. I definitely recommend visiting to anyone who hasn't been before.
