I just returned from Iceland.
Sunrise in winter is after 11am. Most of the daylight is dusk and dawn – days are golden rather than hours. Iceland is extremely quiet and easy going, Nothing is rushed or loud, no drama. The population of the entire country is less that one large uk town
Everything outside of the city is untouched and beautiful beyond description. With so many natural wonders in Iceland I’m truly amazed it does not have more tourists, but then, that means more quiet. No trees or shrubs to speak of, just a few here and there. Makes for unusual and dramatic landscapes. Iceland is a photographers paradise.
