At the beginning of March I was once again allowed to lead a workshop on Iceland, which is always exciting at this time of year! I was supported again by Christian and Christina and I think I can say in advance that we were a good team again 😃 Ok, I'm also married to 50% of the team but that doesn't have to mean anything nowadays 😅
We took 8 participants to some of the highlights of the island for 8 days. The conditions were very unusual. On the one hand, the island was hardly covered in snow for this time of year and the northern lights didn't show up either, although there was no lack of effort from the group 😅
And now comes the big BUT: because we had super weather and great light situations the whole week. Moreover, it was permanently very cold, in the second half of the trip the temperature fluctuated between -8 and -12 °Celsius. I've never had this mixture on the island before - which meant that in many places the ice was very clear and not covered much with matt white snow. A dream for nature photographers.
From a photographic point of view, the trip was very productive, which is why I am actually making two series out of it. The first part is mainly about landscape photography and the second part about ice details and abstracts.
But also apart from the photography it went great: with the great food, nice excursions, good conversations and a lot of fun. Sincere greetings to Christiane and Michael, Karl and Nicole, Romy, Ilja, Sonni and Henning 😀👋
A very special thank you to Kathrin Brockmann from Brockmann Travel, whose great organisation makes such perfectly executed trips possible - it's not only fun for the participants, but also for the photo coaches. And we also notice this with the enquiries, because our Iceland trip in June this year is now also already fully booked.
Now I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures! Today they are not in chronological order, as they are only a few selected highlights anyway and do not cover all spots.
So, I hope you enjoyed the series 🖐
