To say that I am obsessed with taking photos when I travel is an understatement. I spend hours trying to capture the perfect shot. Most of the time failing miserably.
But every now and then I create something that I am really proud of. Especially as my photography skills have evolved.
In the past I have shared my favourite travel photographs as “Photo Essays”. But I have been wanting to create a new photography series on this travel blog. So today I am pleased to introduce “Eye Spy”. You can use these photos to keep yourself (or the kids) entertained next time you travel by trying to find and capture these same photographs.
To kick-start the new Eye Spy photo series I wanted to showcase my favourite photographs from Iceland. A truly magical destination that resulted in over 1,000 shots in just 7 days.
