A few more images to follow from my recent 4 day birding trip to Iceland in June 2017. The landscapes were stunning especially during the first 2 days when we had beautiful sunshine and blue skies. Many of the mountain tops were in full view. With 24 hours of day light, photography is best early morning and early evening. The light at times was stunning. Many of the birds were very obliging and gave excellent photo opportunities, without any unnecessary disturbance whatsoever. Most species we saw and photographed would be extremely difficult to get close up to in UK, with causing disturbance, a rare breeding species in Britain and requiring a licence to photograph them during the breeding season. Without doubt a great place to visit, only wished the food and the beer was a little cheaper, a small price to pay though for the end result.
