After last year’s revelations on my first trip to Iceland, it was a matter of time before I returned for another view. Go Campers Gocampers.is had generously offered me a serious discount on one of their campers in exchange for a selection of my images, which helped considerably with costs. The Photographers Ephemeris, TPE , and its SkyFire add-in suggested that the good weather, or at least not bad weather was to be found to the north so I headed out that way on the Ring Road. After stopping at Costco of course 🙂
Driving along the northern part of Iceland was a great choice. It was gray and cloudy but the landscape of pastures, fjords and geothermal activity was a lot different than the southern route.
The fjords spoke of an active fishing industry, as well as remnants.
I covered most of the northern part of the Ring Road in two days. In early May, most of the snow was gone, with little ice in the lakes. I really wanted to see the East Fjords and then the South, where TPE was telling me the weather was improving.
