iceland III.

this is the second selection of photographs from Iceland that I have decided to share here: I took all of them during our journey from the southern part of the country to the East Fjords. we left behind the green mountains of the south to find more rocky and bare landscapes. we took a short cut through the mountains and ended up on a very difficult and impressive gravel road - the first one that we had driven on in Iceland. when suddenly the fog came and it started to rain we felt very small and lonely facing such wilderness - it had been overwhelming and beautiful!
2nd selection of my photographs from Iceland:
Nikon FM - Kodak Ektar 100
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 160NS
we spent that night in the beautiful Blabjorg Guesthouse in Borgarfjörður Eystri: being right on the Atlantic Ocean it was the ideal place to do some birdwatching and we had the opportunity to take a very close look at a colony of Puffins - it was fantastic! ♥
