Journeys and photos

Icelandic cliché: Kirkjufellsfoss

Iceland is like a landscape photographer's Mecca. With the golden hour lasting literally several hours in the summer and a chance to see northern lights in the winter, it is a destination you must visit. The drawback is that this country has been photographed so many times, by so many skilled photographers, that you will be really struggling to create anything original there.

But in a place like this, sometimes, just sometimes, taking the cliché shot is also fine...
