Photography Trip Iceland
Photography Trip Iceland is a unique experience. One of our private exclusive tours is the Snaefellsnes Photo Tour. There are so many extraordinary places to visit. One of the most popular places to photograph is on the south coast of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. You will find The Black Church or Búðakirkja there. Photographers from all over the world come to photograph it. On our private tours, we stay there as long as it takes to get the weather and light right. People come from all over the world to the Búðir church for their weddings, to celebrate anniversary or birthdays. A top class hotel is close to the church, with beautiful rooms and the food is excellent. It is not a big hotel but exclusive.
National Park on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula
This 90-km long peninsula comprises a world of diversity for a successful Photography Trip Iceland. Friendly towns and villages, spectacular mountains, a multitude of bird species nesting on treacherous cliffs, beaches of sand and pebbles popular among horsemen and rock skimmers, remnants and relics scattered here and there of times and ways of life long past. Saga sites and hiking trails.
The Snaefellsjokull National Park is at the westernmost part of the peninsula, including the mystical glacier Snaefellsjokull, as well as other unique sites such as Djupalonssandur, Thufubjarg and more.
In 2008, the communities of Snaefellsnes Peninsula were the first in Europe to receive certification from Green Globe, an international benchmarking system for sustainable travel and tourism.
How this picture was taken
This photo was taken on a Photography Trip Iceland in the autumn as can be seen on the grass in front of the church. The sky had a dark color but as we waited it started to brighten up. In our opinion, the church is beautiful and simple. Nikon D850, Nikkor 70-200 f:2.8 at 170mm, f:8.0, ISO 100, shutter 1/8 sec, and a tripod.
