Iceland in 16 Days: Day 10, North Iceland, Sauðárkrókur

On our way back from Hofsós to our hotel in Sauðárkrókur, we stopped to photograph these scenes just outside of town, right at sunrise.

About the only thing I would do different on this shot is bump up the ISO to 400, in order to better freeze the small water bird.

Most of my images on the trip were shot between 10:00PM and 4:00AM with images of the same place shot just before and just after midnight. I labeled these images day 10, but I could just as easily called them day 9 as we had not yet gone to bed for the evening.

Iceland in 16 Days: Day 9, North Iceland, Hofsós

We spent the night in Sauðárkrókur, the largest town in the Skagafjörður fjord region in northwest Iceland. There was a music festival going on, and the town was overflowing. Every restaurant was packed and wait times were as long as two hours. Campers were everywhere.

We escaped to nearby Hofsós, one of the oldest trading ports in northern Iceland dating back to the 16th century. Hofsós, with a population of about 200 individuals, is located 37 KM east of Sauðárkrókur.
