I have been in Reikjavik in 2006. This time my digital camera was Canon S80 - the very last non-A-mount. Canon A-1 was already left at home. After Iceland trip I decided to turn to DSLR and I bought KM5D.

Thanks Aavo, I picked up a dust spot towards the end of my stay, blown it away now.

Great shots here everyone.

We spent almost 2 days in Reykjavik at the end of our holiday in August 2013. It's a lovely town, where we liked the colourful architecture.

Alan, I also got a shot of the tie knot instructions. I think it was a great mural and comes in handy once in a while as a bonus

Here's some examples of what we saw there.

1: Hallgrímskirkja basking in the late evening sun

NEX5 + E18-55 kit

2: Green shop

3: Running the dogs

4: Burger joint

5: Closeout sale

6: Colourful Kiki queer bar

NEX6 + E55-210

7: Viking statue in front of the Hallgrímskirkja

NEX6 + E55-210

Skopar 25/4 and 2x Samyang 16/2. Wonder why that second had to be f/2.

Thanks for beautiful pix of one of my favourite cities. These elegant photos have presence and emotional reality. Wonderful people. Wonderful culture.

A fine set, Pieter. For some unaccountable reason, I never thought to go inside the Hallgrímskirkja

The queer bar is opposite Glo, which serves good vegetarian food (but not exclusively) and fabulous cake. I'm still sorting through the photos I took on the other five days.

Alan, you should really go back there. I was in the church twice, once to take pictures and once for an organ concert. Acoustics are great in there and for the visuals you can look here
