It’s already April and spring has had a very rainy start in Dublin. Despite of the weather (or maybe because of it) I’ve been thinking a lot about summer and where I will spend my holidays this year. Last year I spent two weeks in Iceland and I can’t think of any other place that could be better…
While I decide where to go, I wanted to show you a few more photos of the stunning Icelandic landscapes. I took these ones on my third day in the country, when we explored the  Snæfellsnes peninsula before going to the Westfjords in the north.
Snæfellsnes is located in the west of Iceland. I read somewhere that it is sometimes called “Iceland in minuature” because there are a lot of sights in the small peninsula. I don’t know if it deserves the nickname, but it is a curious place. Lonely churches in the middle of nowhere, beautiful black beaches and cliffs with turquoise water, lava fields covered in pale green moss, lava formations huge like trolls, sacred mountains… And the volcanoes. There are a few in the peninsula and the biggest and most famous is Snæfellsjökull, which Jules Verne used as entrance to the center of the earth in his famous novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Browsing through the photos I made in Snæfellnes I realize that I have learned a lot during the last year. They might be a bit poor compared to the pictures I´ve been showing you in the last posts but I think it’s a good exercise to take a look at them and think about how I would shoot them now. Anyway, I hope you like them!
