Iceland in summer for Wild Photography Holidays
July 18th, 2016. We’ve just completed a remarkable and highly enjoyable 12 day tour of south and west Iceland for WPH , as well as doing recce’s in the north west fjords and north for tours there this winter. Remarkable, because of the many, many chances to photographs a wide variety of birds (not least on the fabulous island of Flatey) and to see many arctic plant species that are very rare at home in Scotland. Enjoyable because of the chance to travel with daughter Iona as part of the group that Charlotte and I were leading. These tours always have to balance giving guests full value for money in regards to time in the field with their (and our) need to sleep. We compromised with 15 hour days.
We were shown the north west fjords and are around Myvatn by company owners, Martin and Geraldine, and are hugely excited about guiding guests in these areas in the winter and next summer.
Had I known just how productive Iceland is in terms of bird photography in summer, I would have gone there to shoot stock many years ago…
