I mentioned a weather apocalypse of sorts around Hofn and it hit hard one morning. Crazy weather is worth venturing into at sunrise or sunset because the potential for great shots is there. Safety first, of course. Arcteryx thought enough of my suffering and brand placement that they asked to use this photo in their website promotions.
That morning, a beautiful sunrise wasn’t to be. But venturing east, I found the golden light behind the storm.
Which in turn lit up the surrounding peaks nicely.
At that point, the light was on the wane so I headed back to Hofn for a nap and breakfast. Time to rest and rejuvenate for afternoon at Jokulsarlon. On this visit, there wasn’t much ice on the beach as it was still cold and frozen at the glacier. But wandering the beaches along the lagoon is always a pleasure. Its interesting to see how the ice arranges itself, changing each day.
Later on back at Hotel Hofn, I learned of their happy hour and 20% off meals for guests. this lead to more relaxing and planning for the morning. Hopefully without the hailstorms
