Iceland Photo Tour - Images submitted by the Group  - June 26th, 2012

The Iceland Trekkers are home safe, with computers, hard drives and memory cards full of images from the land of Fire and Ice.  

It was an amazing trek filled with many photo opportunities.  Even before the group was home, we were receiving emails from folk saying they never realized the beauty of this place, and I think a few have added it to their bucket list.  I know it won’t be the last tour we offer to Iceland.

Below are a series of random images from our tour, that I’ve asked the group to email me so I could post and share with everyone.  Check back over the next few days to this final post page as I will be adding images as the different photographers that traveled with us submit them.

Thanks for following our Iceland Tour Blog entries you have helped make this the highest followed tour we have done so far.  And to the Trekkers that joined me on this journey thanks again and I hope to travel and photograph with you on a future tour.
