Congratulations to tmiller9 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 7 votes - View Previous Winners


Just got back from a two week trip through Iceland. This time using a camper van - which made it "easier" to chase the weather, avoid the crowds and test my camping skills.

An exhausting trip - +3500 miles in 14 days - the objective was to try and come up with different views relative to my first trip. The weather was generally cooperative (the midnight sun did not disappoint), the crowds were certainly there (although they tended to be out while I tried to sleep) and my camping skills need more practice.

As for the crowds - yes, the island is full of tourists - but I often found myself alone after 11:00pm - and certainly it was easy to get away from the few that were around by simply walking a few hundred yards.

A set of 5 images - thanks for taking a look.

This fall my wife and I are am going to brave camping as well in Iceland and would be delighted to get photos as unique as yours; very inspiring.

Can I ask what camera and lens you used and any other technical information you care to share.

Thanks!

These are amazing...
I was doing the same thing last last summer... rather than camping we lodged in some out of the way places. The days are so long and after a while there are these moments when you just need to crash.

You really did good work here... I absolutely love pictures #1 and #2...
congrats

Nice set Todd! Glad you had cooperating weather . . . and love the northern latitude hours of golden light! If I had to rank these I believe it would be in the same order as presented. Dave

Todd - these are spectacular. I noticed you are using the sigma 12-24 for nikon. How do you like it. The pic is spectacular, but wanted to know your thoughts also.

Mike - thanks for the comments.

If I can make a few suggestions - 1) bring your own sleeping bag (I did - you don't want the community ones) and 2) Bring several dehydrated pouch meals (and a fast way to boil the water) - these were invaluable considering hunger tends to hit in the middle of the night when everything else is closed
