Day 8 Iceland: The Snaefellsnes Peninsula and completing the Ring Road. Our first stop was Londrangar which GOT fans will recognize as the Stone Towers. The ocean was churning and seemed angry and we got some great shots. Next we moved on to Djupalonsansur beach and we became those tourists...the ones I was complaining about a couple days ago...the ones that ignore the ropes and borders telling you do not enter because it may be unsafe. Oops. We headed down the forbidden path and found a beautiful lava field and some lagoons that led to a black beach. And on that beach we found remains of a British Trawler that wrecked in 1948. The pieces are scattered all over the beach and it was almost a haunting sight. Next we headed to Saxholl Crater and climbed 5 million steps (see the hyperloop for confirmation) up to see the inside of a crater. Once we got to the top we were greeted with a beautiful rainbow. Insta doesn’t like the size of my pic so you can’t see all of it on this post so I’ll put it in our stories today. After staring at the rainbow a while, we headed to Kirkjufell Mountain.That picture definitely sums up Iceland...it’s rugged and raw and beautiful. After that we made our way back to Reykjavík and with that we completed the Ring Road! We went to a few breweries last night with our first stop being RVK Brewing. All their beers were really good with my favorite being Happy Little Fruit Wheat Ale and Jesse’s favorite was Jaevla Godt Farmhouse Ale. Iceland keeps coming through with the great beers. I’ll do a more in depth post on the breweries we hit here in Reykjavík later because I think they deserve their own post. I can’t believe this adventure is almost over and we leave on Monday evening. We are going to spend our remaining time exploring Reykjavík so stay tuned!
The famous mountain Kirkjufell or Church mountain is beautifully captured here by @fredriksamuelson ........................................Fun fact: in Season 7 of Games of Thrones the Hound refers to the mountain as the one that’s shaped like an arrowhead.

Todos os sentidos acordam para receber cada novo estímulo visual e cada elemento dessa paisagem nos surpreende e nos excita de uma maneira única. É assim que a Islândia vive hoje, deixando-se envolver pela beleza e vastidão desta ilha de rochas vulcânicas modelada por forças e ventos vulcânicos. .
Com sorte a incrível aurora boreal aparece.
"Synchronicity" | Kirkjufell, Iceland | When all elements combine on a single landscape, photons start creating music, and visual dreams suddenly become real! After sleeping inside the rental car in Keflavik (the plane arrived at 1am), on my first Iceland trip in 2014, I decided to head to Kirkjufell the next day. I had seen this mountain so many times in online galleries, and yet it still kept me fascinated every single time with its singular shape, adorned by beautiful waterfalls. As soon as I arrived I could feel my heart racing with the excitement, and I rushed to the spot and photographed it from many angles until it was absolutely dark.
Even though this spot is getting more and more crowded every year, in 2014 it was still possible to have plenty of space for different compositions. Despite the recent crowds, I still return there every year, as this is yet another spot which seems to have been designed by a talented God specialized in landscape beauty! 😊

Iceland was epic. You guys already know there are tons of beautiful waterfalls and open landscapes. I‘m trying not to write that every time when i‘m posting one of these shots. The first & second picture was taken in the very west of the Island. They call this mountain Kirkjufell. The second picture shows the famous church of Budir. I really can’t remember the location and name of the last picture. Maybe one of you guys knows it? #visiticeland | #kirkjufell

Did you know that Kirkjufell is the most photographed mountain in Iceland⁉️ Not hard to see why! This beauty is the jewel of the Snæfellsnes peninsula - don’t miss it! #icelandwithaview
Comenzamos con los retratos de lugares más conocidos en Islandia 😜 la famosa #kirkjufell , la montaña más fotografiada de todo el país.
Realmente es un lugar tremendo para hacer fotografía, la cantidad de composiciones posibles es interminable en aquella zona. Nosotros nos llevamos unas cuantas, algunas de ellas me encantan, pero con esta comenzamos con un plato suave. Ya llegarán las otras, que traen sorpresita jeje
Además esta foto lleva un poco de jugueteo:
16-35 en 35 F2.8, para desenfocar totalmente el primer plano, algo que no suelo hacer y me parece un recurso súuuper interesante y no fácil de hacer.
ISO 100 y velocidad 1/800

This picture deserved the wait ;) .
This was such a special place for me. I’d waited for years and planned for, also years, to visit Iceland, and it was worth the wait!
We’d kept an entire day for Kirkjufell, and we drove till here so slow, it took us 5 hours for a 2 hour drive, because we must’ve stopped like a hundred times 😍 .
We reached here before sunset which gave me enough time to take a million pictures of this place. @justthetwo_, @francis1x0 and I camped somewhere close to the mountain to do a barbecue (in -9 degrees 😂) and wait out till we could see the starts.
A brief look at the sunset we noticed northern lights ALL OVER the sky :’) the most unbelievable thing I will ever see, so beautiful, so colourful! .
After enjoying a good dinner under the lights, we rushed back to the mountain to take photos, with at least 30 people also doing the same 😂
We were so engrossed that we forgot about booking a place to stay, and slept in the car instead 😂
Are northern lights on your bucket list? 😍🤩
