The Real Ring Road Tour of Iceland (Landscape photography in Iceland) by Chris Paul



Another genuinely nice person of the photography world, Chris Paul is one of those ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of people, no bad thing in my book this day and age. In this video Chris is lucky enough to be photographing in beautiful Iceland, I will post further parts/videos of Chris in Iceland as and when they come. Enjoy the video…

Landscape photography in Iceland is a beautiful thing to do . but the ring road is a hard and crazy road to drive . in the next few videos you’ll see my 1600KM in four days Journey around Iceland The high and low the good and bad I head from the airport to my first stop, Seljalandsfoss. A little further to the west you can find several other waterfalls. Among them is the interesting Gljufrabui, partially hidden within its own canyon. If you drive a little further east you will spot a sign saying Paradisarhellir, which will lead you to a small cave in the steep hill side. If you drive east from Reykjavik, following Road 1, that will eventually lead you to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. It is about 2 hours’ drive from Reykjavik and you can see the waterfall from the road. You’ll find the access to the waterfall is from the farm of Seljaland along the Ring Road, Iceland’s main highway. Seljalandsfoss waterfall along Iceland’s southern coast is fed by melting water from the famed glacier-capped Eyjafjallajokull volcano. This powerful waterfall cascades into a pretty meadow. However, the path that runs behind the curtain of water is the main attraction. There you can enjoy a truly unique viewpoint of the waterfall. If you intend to walk behind the waterfall, you will get wet. so ware good rain coat. have some good and sturdy shoes. It can get slippy under the waterfall. – Chris Paul
