Iceland is a special place

This is the last day of my Iceland photography workshop, it is always sad for it to come to an end. We had a great bunch of people and it was fun working with them. But before heading back to the airport we had time to explore and photograph Reykjavik, the largest city in Iceland. Most of Iceland has rather utilitarian architecture but they have some pretty cool buildings in Reykjavik.

Harpa is a new building that is a concert hall. It is covered with glass pieces that reflect differently depending on which direction you look at them. It is a fun building and filled with geometric shapes and I got a fun shot of Paul, one of our photographers, reflected in one of the panels.

Nearby is Sun Voyager, a sculpture shaped like a boat with a node to Iceland’s norse heritage. It sits right beside the ocean and it very striking.

The tallest building in Iceland is Hallgrimskirkja, a modern Lutheran church with a unique design. The light wasn’t right this morning for a good shot of it but a few of us went up in the tower to get a view over the city. We walked the streets nearby and came across a row of colorful houses, I like the way they look together.

Then it was time to make our way back to the airport and head home. It is always nice to be home but Iceland is a special place. At least I feel good knowing I’ll be back in August for another workshop.
