My first trip to Iceland was a organised tour, a sort of "overland" tour, where a
dozen people have a driver, a cook and a minibus, touring round the country and camping
along the way.
On my second trip I took my own tent and obtained a circle bus pass which allowed
a full circuit round the main road that runs round Iceland. I stopped off at various
locations on the way and camped. I paid a supplement so that I could replace part
of the coastal road route with bus journeys across the interior. I also spent a couple
of days on the island of Heimey, in the Westman Islands off the south coast, to photograph
the puffins. The camp site there is one of the most spectacular camp site locations
I have ever stayed at.
On my third trip I again took my own tent and concentrated on a few locations, again
using the busses. I camped in Reykjavik, Landmannalaugar, The Snaefellsnes Peninsula
(Hellisssandur, Olavsvik and Stykkisholmur) and I once again spent a few days on
the island of Heimey. As you can see from the gallery captions many of the images
were taken at or near Landmannalaugar which is one of my favourite areas of Iceland.

On my fourth trip I again took my own tent and concentrated on a few locations, again
using the busses. I camped in Reykjavik, Geysir, Akureyri, Myvatn, Jokulsargljufur
National Park and Landmannalaugar.

The images were all taken on slide film and then scanned into my computer.
