Iceland in 16 Days: Day 4, East Fjords – Seydisfjordur – Scenic Fishing Village

Seydisfjordur the “Prettiest East Fjord Town”

I found out about Seydisfjordur in the Eyewitness Travel Top 10 Iceland book. Its listing of 10 Charismatic towns described Seydisfjordur as follows: “Chocolate-box wooden architecture makes Seydisfjordur the prettiest East Fjord town”.

With that description, we had to go.

Image Details: Canon 24-105MM F4 L lens at 50MM, ISO 320 F/13, 0.6 seconds.

As I mentioned in my Iceland Guide I highly recommend several books and eBooks before you go.

We planned our trip starting with an eBook Forever Light: Landscape Photographers Guide to Iceland.

Here is set of images from Seydisfjordur.

The two interior images were taken at the Borgarholl Arts & Crafts shop. We purchased some woolen items.

The shop also served as the owners home. She was gracious to let me photograph the interior of her house.

For those shots I used my Canon 16-35MM F4 L lens, one at 24MM the other at 32MM. Exposure was about 1 second each at ISO 125.

The fishing boats leave very early in the morning and may not be back in harbor until the afternoon. I shot those images just after midnight. Lights came on just a bit later, not that they were needed. The glow in the second image is from the lights. At 1:00AM the fishermen headed out to sea.
