I'll be in Iceland and if my schedule works for anyone to meetup or shoot, let me know. Depends on circumstances but most likely it would need to be at night (which is when sunset is anyway). I'd love to meet some DPCers from there.

Brekka July 6-8
on snaefellsnes July 9, Grundarfjörður

Traveling along the south after that from east to west. I'll be staying at Fosshótel Glacier Lagoon Hotel Rangá, and the Ion adventure hotel along the way. In case you're near any of those, let me know!

I'm psyched!

Then again, Icelandic Sundown in July? Might have to wait a bit for that one.

Heading east tomorrow for a music festival at neskaupsstadur (the other end of the country), will be back at sunday/monday. Which path I take home (south or north) depends on the weather. So we'll see :)

That would be nice to meet...so let me know. I'll be in Reykjavik on Monday, leaving Tuesday on a flight east. Then we start heading back with the Backroads group.

We have a small charter flight and I just gave up on bringing my perfect camera bag (Mindshift Rotation Pro) where everything was neat and tidy in the rotating bottom fanny...and I had quick and convenient access to everything without removing the bag.

But I gave up because after calling the travel company, I am not sure they will let me take it on the charter, or even if they have such a thing as a gate check (I can remove the fanny and then gate check the bag). They say they're strict...we can carry on a small carry on no more than 10 lbs and can only check one bag (my 32 lb suitcase!). The fanny perfectly fit in at 9.6 lbs. The backpack it's part of weighs in at another 4lbs or so empty, and it's stiff and bulky.

Now I have a hodgepodge of bags to carry my 2 cameras with lenses and 2 extra lenses. (Whatever I take I need to make sure I can take the cameras and lenses ON the plane.) Very sad.
