How to be a postcard photographer in the Iceland.

Step 1. Go anywhere.

Step 2. Take photo. 

We took a shortcut off route one on the way to Seyðisfjörður which turned out to be a 17% gradient gravel road up to a plateau. Stunnig stuff but so cold!

By this time is was abundantly clear that being a postcard photographer in Iceland has to be the easiest job in the world. But the view of Lake Lögurinn really took the cake.

The ever changning light and weather make just staying in one spot feel like moving around the country. If you actually do move sensory overload can set in.

Having said that Seyðisfjörður is a very laid back village with a strong artist community, set in a fjord valley. It would be easy to let months slip by here I would imagine.

It was time however to bid a sad farewell to Pat and the Beast and leave, but not before having an interesting chat with a customs official which included the line "You look a lot different with your clothes on" (he had been at the town's public sauna the night before).
