Five beautiful sunsets in Iceland

September 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

In the spring and autumn we get "normal" sunset hours here in Iceland, not at 02:00 in the night like in the summer when most people are sleeping, and not at 15:00 hours when we are usually busy working in the office or where ever. In September you can be relaxed, going home, making dinner and even watching the news before going out to shoot the sunset, and still being able to come home long before midnight. Here are a few examples of Icelandic sunsets.

5. Well, I cheated a little bit with this one. The sunset over Snæfellsjökull glacier seen from Mosfellsbær town, near Reykjavik. On the second one the sun sat down onto the top crater of Snæfellsjökull glacier, and a few moments later it rolled down the north slopes of the glacier and under the horizon.
