ICELAND DISPATCH #21 – THE LAGOON

The drive from  Geysir to the Jokulsarlon lagoon yesterday took me a bit longer than I expected – around five hours with a couple of rest breaks along the way (and one wrong turn). I arrived in time to set up camp and get myself organised for the evenings photography. It was quite overcast with dark moody lighting which I find very conducive to iceberg photography.

The Lagoon

Today is my last full day in Iceland and I am Skaftafell at lunch time; which is about forty five minutes west of the lagoon. I am going to have some lunch at a small local cafe (they have a really excellent apple pie) and then hike up to the carving face of one of the glacial tongues of the Vatnajokull glacier.

The weather is currently very overcast with occasional rain showers, so I am planning to head further west after my hike where the weather was better yesterday. I will stay in Vik this evening so I can photograph the sea stacks in good light at sunset tonight and sunrise tommorow. Heading to Vik tonight also means the drive from Vik to the airport tomorrow  is also much shorter.
