Our second day in Iceland started a 5:30am with a drive to the iconic Skógafoss water fall on the south coast. The conditions were good, but not great and we may make a return visit later in the week, but it was still great!
Our next location was Vík beach on the south coast. Vík í Mýrdal is the southern most village in Iceland and is situated in the shadow of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which covers the Kayla volcano. We managed to avoid the rain, but the wind was blowing some serious most off of the water and the waves here are terrifying. They call them ‘Sneaker Waves’ and the can literally drag you off the beach if they catch you out, so if you are planning on visiting Vík, please be aware of this.
After capturing a shot or two with the camera, I decided to break out the drone. I used this to capture video footage mainly, but I captured a couple of images as well.
We finished up at Vík and headed back to Reykjavik as the weather had started to turn and ended the day with a Kebab and a couple of beers.
Tomorrow we head north for some more iconic locations, so stay tuned for the next blog post.
