Chasing the Llama

Day two. We spent the day around Hellnar photographing birds, waterfalls, beaches, and whatever else appeared before us. The weather was overcast and wet, but that didn’t stop the group from spending twelve hours outside taking photos. I’m the youngest of the seven participants by about thirty years, and when Rod, Marlene and Hawk are included in the mix I still end up as the junior member by about eight years.

The day’s activities led us down to a new beach to start the day, then to the newly-named Haukurfoss (Hawk’s Waterfall) where we photographed waterfalls for over an hour before launching into a spirited discussion of why Rod hates the Detroit Lions. That was followed by lunch and then two more photo outings, the first to another beach, and the second to some neat lava formations which stymied my every effort to photograph them – clearly I have a lot to learn during the two weeks of this photography tour.
