This summer I wanted to tick a few more locations and adventures of my list and this year it was a road trip with my dad. For 2 weeks we traveled and camped for 7 days at Hornstrandir to photograph the Arctic Fox. The weather restricted us for a couple of days but it was also nice to get the rain drops on their dense fur. Then the weather turned and we had incredible weather, nice and warm for a couple of trips to Vigur Island for Black Guillemots and Puffins and Flatey Island for Arctic Terns. A wonderful trip that hopefully the pictures will do justice.

It was my first sightseeing flight today and got an amazing view over the city, golden circle and south coast. Could not believe the view and the stunning scenery. As you can see.

On May 6th 2015 a minke whale washed up on a sandy beach of Vogur on the Reykjanes Peninsula. It is uncertain why this minke whale stranded but a Navy ship came through a few days before, which might have been emitting high intensive sonar. Without an autopsy it is just speculation, hopefully the Marine Institute will give some answers. It is very sad news because this minke whale is one known very well to us working on Faxaflói. A minke whale called Happy seen every year since 2007. A regular that unfortunately won't be regularly anymore.
