The Iceland Photographic Workshop March 1st – 11th 2014

The Icelandic Photographic Workshop came to a close with an unbelievable storm that swept up from the South and hit the coastline with winds of gusts up to 173 kms an hour! The group took shelter in a large farmhouse built with stables and training area on the ground floor. Six hours later towards evening they re-opened the road and we continued onto our last hotel for this journey. Between the fronts of weather we had the opportunity to spend about 5 hours photographing the superb icebergs that are scattered on the beach at Jokulsarlon. What made this more of a challenge was the fact that the first storm from which we all sheltered had kicked up the waves into a frenzy. With amazing back-lighting and cloud formations in the southern Skies we all worked to capture the unbelievable site along the coastline. this was the grand finale… and a beautiful one! A big thanks to all the lovely participants of this workshop… Greg and Val Earl, Ann Alcock, Pam Rixon, Linda Herd, Victoria Bell, Peter and Margaret Walton, Murray and Judy McEachern… and of course my great workshop mate Ewen Bell…a special thanks… it was a phenomenal trip and will not be easily forgotten by those who attended it.
