Route One

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 16 April 2016 in Landscape & Rural.


I would not be able to complete the main series from Iceland without posting at least one road photo. It is hard to drive in Iceland - the landscapes and views are so amazing everywhere that I had to continually remind myself to keep my eyes on the road and not around it.

There were many times where I wished I stopped and took photos but often it was a split second decision and once the moment was gone it was too late. Every now and again, however, I was able to find a safe place to stop and get the camera out - just like here on Route One between Hofn and Stokksnes. We were actually going to photograph the Vestrahorn mountain in the afternoon/evening sun but the clouds you can see here enshrouded it completely by the time we got there.

This is almost the end of the main series of photos from our trip to Iceland. I am sure there are other small gems hiding in the archives so no doubt they will resurface at some stage in the future. We travelled over 8,500km in four weeks and still have not seen everything that this amazing place has to offer. It was always going to be one of those places, where the moment I saw the first incredible landscape I would just fall in love with it. It is unreal to think how many fantastic sights can be crammed into such a relatively small country.
