Gone to See Iceland in the Winter Photography Trip. Day 2: Reykjavik.

Before joining up with the Winter in Iceland Photography Workshop group, I went for a walkabout in Reykjavik. Actually, I arrived in Reykjavik a couple of days early not trusting the weather for traveling in either New Jersey or Iceland. It was a grey Monday morning; overcast, rainy, and cold. Capturing the day in B&W captured the mood.
