Iceland Gallery and E-book

Post by maxlyons » Sun Jun 02, 2013 5:24 pm

I just posted a gallery of 100 images from a trip to Iceland at the end of last September: Iceland Gallery

The images are primarily from the Westfjords region and Southern coast region. The landscapes were all spectacular. Late September is already after the main tourist season in Iceland, so some hotels and campgrounds were closed, but since we travelled around in an excellent little Happy Camper, that didn't matter...it allowed us to see (and stay) in some beautiful remote locations.

Late September was also rewarding because the autumn tundra colors were beautiful, and the nights were long and dark enough to see the aurora. On one night in particular, the skies were almost clear, and the aurora put on quite a display. I didn't know if it would lend itself to panoramic image stitching, but I managed to create quite a few images of the aurora display.

On the flight back to the United States, the skies were clear enough for us to see Greenland from above. Although the interior of the country appeared so completely featureless white that it was hard to tell if we were looking at ice or clouds from above, the coastal regions were beautiful.

I am also publishing a larger collection of 230 images from Iceland as a free E-book in PDF format. The E-book can be downloaded from the appropriate link on this page:

Also...about 75% of the images in the book and gallery were taken with a Sony RX100 compact camera I purchased shortly before the trip. It has some limitations compared to a DSLR, but has really exceeded my expectations of what a small camera could do.

That must have been a fantastic sight, to see Greenland from above!

I enjoyed looking at the pictures in the Iceland Gallery. Those are very beautiful images. The pictures of the churches and shelters in desolate scenes are the images that I like best.

Loved the panoramas of Iceland Max, especially the one of the "happy camper" under the aurora - what a magnificent sight. Definitely on my "to do" list .... eventually.
Cheers,

Thank you for making this available in PDF. The index with the linked bookmarks is a great touch. Some of the images are strikingly beautiful.
