The earth around us alive with earthquake, volcanic and geothermal activity, we took the ring road around the circumference of the island on a 9-day journey.  On our return to Reykjavik I spent a day on a photo tour of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.  With a population of only 326,000, and a landscape shaped by extreme earth forces and weather, Iceland was a wide-open playground for my camera.

Our Visit to the Land of Fire and Ice

Before We Left

The Bardarbunga Volcano kept     threatening to erupt but when it finally did there was no ash and was not a threat to air travel.

While We Were There

Bardarbunga kept erupting and no one was allowed to get close except by air.  Sometimes late at night you could see the red glow from the eruption off in the distance.
