Hello and welcome back!

Today we'll be picking up where we left off last time, as we were driving through the massive and seemingly endless mossy fields on our way to an amazing canyon, canyon Fjaðrárgljúfur! And no, I have no idea how to pronounce that.

I had seen many photos of this place over the years but never really had any idea where in Iceland it was or how hard it was to get to. So while planning this trip, I looked into it a bit and to my surprise it was actually on our route and not very hard to access either!

So we made our way out of the mossy area, and took a small side road, and then over a very makeshift looking small bridge, and then to a decent sized parking lot where the trail began. And when we got there, it wasn't even that busy. I expected a lot more people.

So first there was small bridge at the mouth of the canyon, so I started there to get a couple shots.

From there, I headed back to the main trail which ran along side of the canyon, and it was honestly one of the most amazing landscapes I've seen!

And this was just getting started! Unfortunately, that first photo was the only glimpse of sunlight we'd see as the clouds overtook the sky once again, but it also played into the vibe of this amazing spot. After walking up a bit further and looking back, the views began to reveal themselves!

I walked up a bit further and switched to my telephoto lens and started getting some tighter shots to showcase the features of this canyon!

Also felt inspired to do a really tight panoramic style shot, what do you think?

After that, I started switching back and forth between wide and tight shots.

After that, we went to the end of the main trail to an overlook area, and of course had to get a few selfies.

And looking down at some of the waterfalls into the canyon was also amazing!

Lastly, we made our way back the way we came towards the parking lot, and that's when I took the opportunity to put the drone up and get some awesome aerial views!

And that wrapped up our day, as we got back into our van and headed off to our location to spend the night, but we were in for quite the unexpected surprise.

So be sure to check out the next post, and let me know, have you seen this canyon before? What shots did you like the most? What did you think of the drone shots? Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you in the next one!
