Nice! How was it in January?


Not really as bad as some might think. It wasn't colder than Seattle (it was right around freezing), though the days were certainly very, very short. We had one very nice, sunny day that we spent hiking around on a glacier. Another day we did the "golden circle" tour and it was cloudy, raining or snowing everywhere the whole time. But we really liked the place! And the people. The landscape in winter is, well, white. In summer from what I've seen it's completely different.

Oh, and the Blue Lagoon was wonderful :-)

Depends if I have time but at this point I'd want to join the alt crew.

I expect hauxon (Hrannar) might have an idea. I just sent him a PM. Lets' see...

I'm good to go! As long as the dates line up with the calendar - you know what I mean.

I am interested too. Been on my list to see along with Svalbard.

I am very interested too. Depending on the time of the year, I could come for a long week-end or for around 10 days. January to March or May to June would mean a long week-end, and April or August would be more like 10 days. My schedule is unclear and changing, so it might be better or worse.

I did do a trip in Iceland in september 2002. It was a one week trekking in the Landmannalaugar area, which actually turned out to be a long sequence of storms (all kinds of storms). I was still using film, and I got very few real pictures as the weather made it really hard, but I was amazed by the landscapes, and the strength of the nature elements. After this, I am convinced I would find inspiring photo subjects pretty much everywhere in Iceland!

It would be nice to see the volcano that forced me into a 2010 road trip from Gothenberg to Madrid. No complaints, it was a great trip!


Me too! Well, except that my road trip was from Madrid to Paris. It was also nice, with some good time in Madrid, and an opportunity to visit the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao.

Never been to Svalbard, but they say it is addictive too. Hope to see you

It would be excellent to get your experience into this project

Changing, fortunate or unfortunate weather (depending on your style) is one of the things we just have to accept. A rain cover for the camera should be on everybodys equipment list.

Trekking is one of the things I would really like to do there some time.

If it's August, and I can convince my wife, I might be in. I'm very interested, but (1) don't have too much flexibility in dates and (2) we've already been talking about returning to Peru, so that might take priority.

(I know; it's a horrible problem to have...)

Not to be discourage anyone from going but I'd argue that a long weekend is really a very short time for Iceland. One would probably have to stay pretty much in one place.
When I was there in 2004 two weeks felt pretty rushed. In one part it was due to the pre-planned schedule (had a rental car but pre-booked accommodation) but the landscape and nature is so diverse. There's tons to see and shoot (and smell at times :P ) at pretty much every corner. And it's not only variations of the same but pretty much a new country from east to west to north and south. From coast to highland. Given a more photo-orientated visit compared to last time I'd hazard the guess it'll take even more time to appreciate it, at least in the way I tend to shoot.

I'd plan for 7 to 10 days on the island.

I think it would have to be a week+ (Sat-Sun) and it would have to be
concentrated in one location with side trips then...
I would like to see some weird light (long day, midnight photography, this kind of things)
and I'd like to go there (a flickr pic):

Yeah, really a horrible problem

I am excited and happy that the idea has gained momentum, and people have started planning already

I am all in for 7-10 days. It seems some of those who initially suggested a long weekend, also can consider a week more or less.
