Midnight Sun Photography

Summer is an amazing time in Iceland, when wildflowers bloom and the fjords once again teem with wildlife. The days will seem endless as the phenomenon of the Midnight Sun takes hold, bathing both the skies and the landscape in a warm, golden glow. Sunsets give way to sunrises with barely any darkness between. With so much time on our hands, hours of magical light and limitless compositions at our fingertips, this is the perfect time to visit Iceland to learn all there is to know about the intricacies of landscape photography.

The South Coast of Iceland

No doubt the most popular part of Iceland, the south coast is home to spectacular landscapes and a host of photographic opportunities that will excite any photographer. From thundering waterfalls, black sand beaches and stunning sea stacks to the massive icebergs at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and its neighboring ice beach, this is an area that overflows with natural beauty.
