Rain Clouds from Pass, Iceland

We crossed from fjord to hilltop to fjord as we drove from the Westfjords towards Akureyri. The wind was so strong that I had to stand at an angle when photographing the fog hanging low over a mountain. We stopped on top of a pass near Varmahlíð to photograph the clouds as they broke like ocean waves against the mountains on the other side of the next fjord.

Sunset over Westfjords, Iceland

As the sun was setting around midnight, I took a walk down to the water among grazing sheep and Arctic terns.

Westfjord Bulb Panorama, Iceland

After visiting the puffins nesting along the cliffs of the Westfjords , I stopped to take a long-exposure (‘bulb’) panorama of the ocean crashing against the empty beach near Breiðavík.
