In 2012 my wife and I stopped over in Iceland as part of our 10 year anniversary trip. I don’t know if I have enjoyed how unique a place is in such a short period of time before in my life. Iceland is truly a captivating place to visit. It is a landscape photographer’s dream.
We spent some time exploring Reykjavik, which is a very artistic city. We enjoyed the street art everywhere, the colorful houses and the friendly people everywhere that we went. The highlight was checking out Hallgrímskirkja, the Lutheran church that sits up on a hill overlooking the city. The view from the top was definitely a great one!
After exploring the city, we went on a tour of the golden circle, which hits some of the highlights like Þingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss waterfall, and the original geyser, Geysir. I was amazed by the Gullfoss waterfall and how it seemingly falls into the earth. Definitely a site well worth seeing.
I am trying to plan a trip back to Iceland where I will explore the ring road, which travels around the outskirt of the island. I hope it happens sooner than later because I can’t wait to go back.
