One of my highlights of this second trip of mine to Iceland was discovering Seydisfjordur along the Eastern Coast. I had read about the photogenic Blue Church and decided to head there one morning since I was in the area on the Ring Road. I descended into the town, nestled into a cozy fjord at sunrise:
The town reveals itself as you work your way down winding roads:
Morning light was kind to me and I captured the church in a nice reflection. Sony a7r2 and Zeiss 100-300mm lens. I also discovered great pizza and coffee in town and had the chance to take a nice nap. I ventured back here later on in my trip for sunset, to discover this is a better sunrise shot.
Navigating the road along the fjords takes time but is one beautiful revelation after another. In the morning and evening, the birds come out and can be found nestling around the shallow parts of each fjord, or congregating on the meadows.
Icelandic horses are out as well in the calm morning light.
At this time of the year, May, there is still a bit of snow around in the East Fjords area.
So at this point, I am heading down the coast to my base at Hofn. More to come soon.
