As those of you that follow my blog regularly know, over the summer I spent about 10 days traveling through Iceland. It was my best photographic trip ever as everywhere you turn there’s an amazing photo opportunity. The landscapes are simply out of this world and the feeling of isolation is present at every turn, especially in the North-West part of the country called the Westfjords.
The strange thing about Iceland is that although the landscape looks very wild and looks like it should be full of wildlife, there are actually not that many wild animals around. However, at every corner you see the famous Icelandic horses (which I photographed here)Â and sheep. Lots and lots of sheep. I imagine that if someone from Wales or New Zealand would go for a visit they would feel right at home.
At the time I took this photo, I was busy watching two whales in the distance and as I turned around with my back to the sea I noticed this sheep looking like it was also enjoying the whale show. I had only a few moments to compose the shot, before it started running away.
