Maybe you can understand. We had jobs where we sat in an office chair, the vista was our computer screens, the sounds were phones ringing, and the air was super cooled in the summer. We wanted a getaway vacation and wanted more than anything to truly GET AWAY.
The great outdoors beckoned. Iceland was our choice. We spent our days outside enjoying everything that was beautiful and different from our daily life back at home. We used our Canon G9 and iPhone cameras to take photos and then compared every evening, observing how we had each captured the day.
The muted skylight in Iceland made photography easier. Landscape colors were absolutely vibrant. The subject matter was really appealing: waterfalls, mountains, springs with algae, glaciers…
We’ve taken quite a few trips and would say –hands down -that Iceland wins for most beautiful place to photograph.
