Inspiring Photography Locations

Location is key to photography, however it’s also important to be in the right at the right time. Find out the details I’ve collected surrounding some inspiring, well-known and less well-known photography locations.

Skarðsvík Beach, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

While Kirkjufell is clearly the main draw on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, it would be a shame to overlook Skarðsvík Beach. The golden sands and turquoise water cut a sharp contrast to the surrounding dark, volcanic landscape.

Getting There: Skarðsvík Beach

To get to Skarðsvík Beach, follow the main road of Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Útnesvegur (Nr. 574), before turning west onto Öndverðarnesvegur (Nr. 579). It is a gravel road but we were able to get there with our small city car.
