August 25, 2017 to September 3, 2017

 

Iceland is known as the landscape photographer’s paradise, with vast landscapes that are alien in their starkness. Here is a brief description of what you can expect:

  • Quaint villages, churches, and barns speckle the countryside.
  • Icelandic horses greet you at the fence line and patiently wait for the images to be captured.
  • South Eastern Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls cascade from hundreds of feet above you.
  • Icebergs drifting about the glacier lagoon, shifting and crashing as they make their way to sea.
  • Massive cliff walls plunging into the ocean.

If it sounds amazing, it is because it is!
