I cannot begin to tell you how angry I was to find the first litter here that we have seen since we landed on Iceland. What really made my blood boil was that it had obviously been left by photographers.
Wrappings from a memory card, a flight luggage label complete with the name of it’s owner, who flew in from Frankfurt, a battery, a piece of broken tripod and two tabs from professional 120 film, so certainly not all from general tourists. What sort of scumbags fly to such a beautiful place and then start to foul it up for everyone else?
There really is no excuse for it. I've been a photographer for over thirty years, film and file, and never left anything but my footprints at a location. People like this are an absolute disgrace and drag the reputation of the majority of responsible photographers down and though the mud with them. I cleared it all up of course.
We decided this place deserved better light so after a few shots and sketches we grabbed some more supplies at Grundarfjordur before taking a quick look at Strykkisholmur.
