We’re just back from 4 nights in Reykjavik, which was an absolute blast. We did the usual suspects with trips to the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon. We weren’t so lucky with the Northern Lights, although we did get to see a murmuring on our second last night. The long exposure below [15 seconds, F4, ISO 800] picks out a lot more detail than was visible with the naked eye:
We knew from the weather forecast that there wasn’t really much point in booking an organised tour [and we really only had two nights to play with]. This was actually on a night when the tours had been cancelled. The composition is dire, but it was the darkest spot that we could find around the Old Harbour, and it was blowing a gale.
A few other obligatory waterfall / geyser type shots included below. Oh, and just to explain the title: on the Golden Circle, we called in for lunch at the facilities by Geysir, where you suffer the consequences of being a captive audience. The fish soup we had for lunch was delicious, but £28 for two bowls was almost as memorable as the scenery!
