    Dear Martin, thanks a lot for sharing your experience and the beautiful pictures with us! However, it appears to me that this year, you have visited the same region of Iceland as in last year.
    I have been to that wonderful country a couple of times and had the chance to see some areas in the west and the center. There definitly are unbelievable landscapes especially in the far northwest (the Westfjords) as well as as in the north around Myvatn.
    Maybe you could consider going there…. I would be curious about what the shots you will be able to achieve there.
    Kind regards

      Hi Thomas,

      Thanks for your feedback.

      Of course, I would like to visit some of the northern areas too, but you have to realize that this is not a personal trip. When you organize a tour there are other consideration to be kept in mind, such as lodging and access. Generally once you arrive at a winning formula, you continue to refine it, making each trip better for a while. We may well set something up earlier in the season and go up north in a future year, but anything else would probably be in addition to this tour, not instead of, at least for a few more years.

    Martin, I like your “favorite” photo, but my favorite still remains Gentoo Point.
