Reykjavik in Black and White // A Photo Tour in Iceland

Don't worry, I still have a lot to share about Greenland but I thought I'd mix it up a little and write about my stopover in Iceland in between all those Greenland posts!

I stayed in Reykjavik for 24 hours before going to Nuuk and this route is advertised as "Arctic city-hopping" by the tourism company Visit Greenland. Makes sense, Reykjavik and Nuuk are the only cities in the North Atlantic and "only" 3-4 hours by plane away from each other. They both are beautiful - each in her own way!

However, when I first put this post together, I found my pictures of Reykjavik rather dull in comparison to all those bright and colourful Greenlandic houses you saw last week. Don't get me wrong, Reykjavik is colourful and pretty too but somehow I wasn't quite satisfied with my pictures. They weren't colourful enough! So I thought why not edit them and make them black and white instead?

So that's what I did and I have to say, I'm really happy with the outcome! Therefore I'm taking you on a visual tour around Reykjavik today, all in black and white! The original pictures and everything about my 24 hours in the city will follow next week!

Would you be interested in city-hopping in the Arctic? And what's your view on b/w photography?

Happy Travel Tuesday!
