Iceland Photo Tour - Thursday July 11th, 2013

July 11, 2013 at 9:36 PM

What a great day for photography in Iceland.  Several highlights of the day were Detifoss, Godafoss, and Puffins on the north coast just off the arctic circle.

As we traveled to the far north point of the island today, we encountered many interesting things to capture.  Detifoss is a very powerful water fall, that you can actually walk right up to the edge of the rushing water, it was amazing.  You can feel the rumble under your feet. 

While up at the north point, we had opportunity to photograph Puffins, and will share some images of them in the image post section below.  We made our way to Akureyri, the group is staying in a hotel just outside of the city with a beautiful view of the fjord.

Tomorrow we will be traveling from Akureyri back towards Reykjavik, for our last night.  We will spend some time in the Reykjavik tomorrow evening and the following day.
