Five-Years Ago (05-August-2013) — Iceland

Gone to See Iceland 2013 Photography Safari with Mike Hagen. Day 7: Cape Ingolfshofdi (ingólfshöfði) Along the South East Coast.

Puffin Sunning Itself After A Successful Fishing Trip – The Young Ones Will Soon Get Breakfast. Cape Ingolfshofdi (Ingólfshöfði) a private nature preserve on an isolated headland on the coast half way between Skaftafell in Vatnajokull National Park and Jökulsárlón ice lagoon in Iceland. Image taken with a Nikon 1 V2 camera FT-1 Adapter and 80-400 mm VR II lens (ISO 160, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/250 sec). This camera/lens combination has a field of view equivalent to a 1080 mm lens on a full-frame DSLR, and I was not using a tripod or monopod during the hike.
