Iceland Photo Tour

Iceland 2017 just 1 spot remains

May 30th, 2017

I have just one spot remaining for my 12 day Ultimate Iceland Highlands Photo Tour for 2017.  If you have been sitting on the fence thinking about coming along, sit no longer, there is only one place left.  The tour begins and ends in Reykjavik Iceland, and is fully comprehensive with no hidden extras.  Dates for Iceland are August 26th – September 7th 2017, which follows on directly from my  8 dayGreenland Sailing adventure.  Click the link above to see all the details.

Greenland Sailing Photo Adventure.

I still have a couple of places on my 8 day Greenland Sailing Photo Adventure, and the best thing is that you can do both the Iceland Tour and the Greenland tour together.  You even get a discount for going on both.  My Greenland sailing  tour also leaves from Reykjavik in Iceland, where we have a charter flight to East Greenland to board our ship, the beautiful Donna Wood, a lovingly restored 100 year old Schooner.  We spend 8 days sailing around in the incredible Scoresby Sound, the biggest Fjord system in the world, seeing and photographing some of the most spectacular landscape on Earth before flying back to Reykjavik in Iceland again just in time to begin the 12 Ultimate Iceland Highlands tour.  Scoresby Sound in East Greenland is very calm, so seasickness is not an issue.  We fly to Greenland, so there are no open ocean crossing to be made by boat and we maximise our time in Scoresby Sound.  Click the link above to see all the details.

Bhutan Photo Tour 2018 Dates

May 24th, 2017

Dates are out for my Bhutan Photo Tour for 2018.  I’m still building the web page with all the details and the full itinerary, but all the planning is done the itinerary is written and the hotels are reserved.

15 days in Bhutan.

This tour will follow my tried and tested plan of 15 days in Bhutan, a small group travelling in cars (not a bus) with only two participants, a local driver and a guide per car.

2 Cultural Festivals.

I base the itinerary of the tour around the local cultural festivals, which are a major highlight of the tours.  This year the timing is finally right for me to include two festivals I have been wanting to attend for years, but I’ll tell you more about that later.

Dates for my next Bhutan Photo Tour are…  4 – 19 November 2018.

Full details and itinerary will be out soon, if you would like to be kept up to date you can email me tours@adammonk.com or you can just keep an eye on the blog.

Iceland Photo Tour 2017 Another Chance

April 24th, 2017

Another image from the Southern Highlands of Iceland with a tiny person in the landscape.  This one is very tiny, but wearing a bright red jacket, once you notice it the sheer scale of the landscape snaps into perspective.  This image translates better into a substantial sized print where the person is a little more visible, but thats a little hard to show on the internet.

Iceland Highlands Adventure update.

My Iceland Photo tour 2017 was officially fully booked, and that’s what I was writing in this blog post.  As of last night though, I have 3 places that have become available due to cancellations.  So if you were considering coming with me to Iceland this year you were almost too late, but now you have another chance.  You can read all about the Iceland Highlands Adventure for this year right HERE>>

Iceland Highlands with 100 Mp

April 8th, 2017

Last Year in August I spent 10 days travelling around the Southern Highlands of Iceland with my Phase One 100 Megapixel camera, the (relatively) newly released Phase One XF and the IQ3-100 back.  Along with a range of Phase One, Schneider Kreuznach and Mamiya lenses it’s a very heavy camera bag!  So is it worth carrying all that gear?  Are the results really that good?  Well, yes.

Scoresby Sound Icebergs

March 19th, 2017

Scoresby sound in South East Greenland is the largest Fjord complex on Earth, it is also the least populated and has one of the most isolated communities on Earth….  Interesting stats, but the best bits are that it is completely unique and amazingly beautiful.  Seeing Scoresby Sound by boat during the brief far Northern hemisphere summer is definitely one of the highlights of my career so far.  To sail around surrounded by sheer rock walls hundreds of metres high in fjords that are hundreds of metres deep (I spent some time time watching the depth sounder on the boat completely awed), while massive ice sculptures that dwarfed the boat floated serenely past is truly something to behold.

Highlands of Iceland

February 8th, 2017

Just before taking off to Greenland last year I spent a couple of weeks driving around the wild Southern Highlands of Iceland exploring for this years Iceland photo tour.  I had rented a 4wd camper van, which turned out to be clapped out Landrover Defender with a timber platform screwed together in the back as a bed…  I paid more to rent this car for the two weeks than I would have paid to buy it  back here in Australia!  Still, it got me to some amazing places where you really do need 4wd, and provided shelter for the many times it rained.  If you look  carefully, you can see the car in the bottom left corner in the image below.  From this distance you can’t tell just how tired and worn out it is.  If you look even more carefully you can see the tiny shapes of two climbers on the mountain in the top right hand corner.Iceland Photo Tour

East Greenland Icebergs

February 4th, 2017

Last year I went to Greenland’s Scoresby Sound for the first time… and it’s taken me this long to write about it.  I think I am about 18 months behind in my processing right now, which has got to be some kind of record.  I used to complain about being stuck in the gallery all the time without any time to actually get out shooting, now I have the opposite problem, I shoot so much I don’t seem to have the time to process at all!  For example, I am writing this from a hotel (a rare night in a hotel to dry out the swag) while touring around Tasmania…  More on this later.
