Travelling through Iceland, each day wetter darker and windier than the day before, photography became a real challenge. Whether keeping equipment dry or even just getting out of the van against the howling wind: everything was difficult.  It was soon obvious that there were to be no images of glowing aurora or icebergs sparking in the sunrise but instead, the weather lent itself to images that were were moody and dark, some almost monochrome with just occasional glimpses of golden light and others in the earth colours of the country; rust, olive, heather and steel blue. In the end I came to prefer them as more distinctive and even preferred the weather which seemed fitting for Iceland, somehow.
