    Nice summertime shots. My wife and I went this past March. In winter you cannot drive as many places, we stuck to the southern coastal region going as far as Jökulsárlón. It was not much less cloudy than your visit. It was a lot more white as we got three straight days with consistent snow and sleet, both of which I prefer to rain. Loved the black beaches, especially when they had a fresh coat of snow. I have been quite lazy about processing and posting those images. A few are on the Olympus and Landscape threads.

    Cost wise I thought everything was about normal European prices except food and drink. Dear God was that expensive. I think we spent $40 US for two burgers and Cokes near Skogafoss. And the cheapest bottle of wine I saw was around $50 for a bottle that retails here in the states for $6!

    Thanks for the tour. The lighthouse is probably there as it seems to be on the highest point.

    As D70 said, thanks so very much for the virtual tour Screenclutter. I would love to go but almost certainly wont make it in my lifetime.

    Very nice shots as is. A little post processing would bring them up a treat.

    I second Rich's comment I like yours more than my Rotorua shots. Your fog shrouded mountains evoke nice mental images that surpass the tourist trap that is Rotorua.

    Rotorua may be a tourist trap, but there are a lot more vents that are all over the place; I remember them in people's gardens, randomly beside roads, etc. Not very photogenic perhaps but not as small and much more...present.

    I used ViewNX2 with the D5100 NEF files. Mainly for highlights, sharpening, shadows and straightening. I think ViewNX2 also automatically corrects for distortion when converting the file to JPEGs if a Nikon lens was used. I put my better composed (in my opinion) Iceland pictures in my Flickr account, the link is in my signature.

    Nice shots on your Flickr page. Well done. Looks like you covered some portions of Europe pretty well.
