Behind the Lens
Iceland, March 2014: Part One
I've already learnt that smjor is Icelandic for butter; this could be useful. We've also discerned that although the spring equinox is nigh, winter is still very much in control here. We drive out of Reykjavik and straight into a snowstorm, and I'm now wondering if I brought enough layers for the biting winds and sub-zero temperatures. As Highway One climbs over the mountains to the east of the capital, the visibility reduces and the driving snow accumulates. A week ago I was worried that our Winter in Iceland adventure would be just too mild and spring-like, but this is the real deal, just what we expected of an island in the north Atlantic in March. We are, after all, just a few degrees short of the Arctic Circle, so Iceland should be, well, icy.
