Leadenhall Market

Leadenhall Market | City of London

Leadenhall Market is a covered shopping area in the City of London and is one of the oldest markets in London, having been there since the 14th century. The attractive architecture and picturesque cobbled streets make it a popular location for tourists and city workers. It has also been used as a film location a few times, most famously for the first Harry Potter movie. I’d wanted to get a shot like this of it for a long time, but it is usually crowded when I am there or I just haven’t had my tripod with me. I got the chance a few months ago when I came here with a few friends on a Saturday evening after an Instagram meetup and this is the result.

Reynisfjara

Reynisfjara, Iceland

Reynisfjara is a black pebbled beach on the south coast of Iceland, near Vik. It was a particularly grey morning when we visited and spent a couple of hours dodging the rain. The weather meant that there wasn’t a lot of colour in this long exposure photograph, so black and white processing was always favourite. There is a local story that the basalt sea stacks are a couple of trolls who were pulling a boat to shore when the sun rose and they were petrified. Whether you believe in trolls or not, they are an iconic symbol of this part of Iceland and are named Reynisdrangar.

On the road to Hofn in Iceland

Abandoned house on the road to Hofn

Sally, John and I were driving to Hofn, on the eastern side of Iceland, when we came across this scene at the side of the road. Abandoned buildings next to the road are fairly common and so are the horses. If you stopped every time you saw a photo opportunity in Iceland, you’d never get anywhere, but the combination of the old house, the horses and the beautiful evening light here meant that we had to stop the car and get out to take some photos.

Kirkjufell, Iceland

Kirkjufellfoss waterfall and the mountain Kirkjufell in Iceland

Kirkjufell, Iceland

The iconic view of the waterfall Kirkjufellfoss, with the mountain Kirkjufell in the background was one of the sites I was looking forward to seeing and photographing when we visited Iceland this year. I had visions beforehand of catching a sunset here and having a few hours to photograph it from different angles in the almost endless daylight. On the day we were here though, there was no sign of the sun, but the stormy sky made for an atmospheric shot anyway. This is a long exposure of four minutes which gave me some lovely soft clouds and smooth flowing waterfalls.

Akranes Lighthouse

Akranes Lighthouse

Akranes Lighthouse

Akranes is on the west coast of Iceland a little north of Reykjavik. This is one of two lighthouses there and is a long exposure shot taken at the end of May this year, when it was light pretty much all day and night. The problem with this, for a first time visitor to Iceland, is that it’s very easy to lose track of time. It was early evening when we arrived in Akranes, but soon reached 9:30pm before we realised that we ought to find somewhere to eat. At this time in a small town like Akranes, there isn’t a lot left open!
