This was my second trip to Iceland having been on an organised photo trip the previous winter. I decided that I wanted to be able to explore the whole of Iceland so decided on taking the ferry from Hirtshals in Denmark. As the ferry stopped off in the Faroe Islands I spent four weeks exploring these islands.

I arrived in Iceland in Early April for a four month stay, promptly being marooned in Seyðisfjörður due to late snows blocking the pass over the mountains. Once on my way I decided on doing an anticlockwise tour around the ring road, so ended up in Vik in earl June. The weather on this day was very changeable with a stiff breeze and the sun making a very occasional appearance. The beach can be very dangerous, due to rogue waves, but you just have to be aware of your surroundings. To get the picture I had to wait for the tide to be going out, as this would be safer. I like the composition as the rocks in the foreground balance the sea stack, and the shutter speed allowed me to capture the force of the waves on that day.
