Iceland – a synopsis

Iceland – a synopsis

The first two weeks of July were passed in Iceland revelling in scenery, birds and flowers … and eating lots of fish.

For those readers who would enjoy more information and a larger selection of photographs than can be posted here, please head over to the trip report page where you can indulge yourselves in just a small selection of what we encountered.

For those with only a few minutes to spare here are a very few choice images that will give you a small taste of what we found. It has been extremely hard to cull the >1000 photographs to a mere ten or so for this post … big decision, should the first picture be landscape or bird or flower? The rainbow made the decision easier …
