Personal // The south coast of Iceland // Iceland Landscape Photographs

Sunrise at Vestrahorn, Iceland

Iceland. The land of ice… and melted ice gushing over the mountainsides (among many other things of course).

This past May, Julie and I had the opportunity to take a brief trip across the Atlantic and explore the sights of Iceland. In those brief six days, we traversed across the southern and western coasts of the vast island, exploring the unique landscape of rugged coastline, mossy hillsides, rocky terrain, black sand beaches, snow dusted mountain ranges, glacial lagoons, and waterfalls galore.

In this first part of a two part series, I share images of our journey over the Atlantic, our cozy home for those six days (Kuku Campers), waterfalls big (Skógafoss, Seljalandsfoss, Svartifoss) and small, the relentless current of Reynisfjara, glaciers and floating icebergs from Skaftafell and Jökulsárlón, and the majestic Vestrahorn.

Update: Part II is here!
