We spent a few hours at the Arnarstapi birdcliffs. The near surroundings are in fact horrible, with developing real estate and the classic orange cones, in combination with many stupid and ignorant people, like the chinese family who tried to catch nesting terns right next to a café, or the Selfie Army blocking certaing bottlenecks on the restricted walking path.

The overall scenery and birdcliffs are however great to watch, and this is a good place to watch one of Icelands truly special bird species, the Harlequin Duck. Also, many Kittiwakes and Fulmars nest, which can be seen as small white Gull-like spots in the left side of the pano, as well as the ever present Puffins.

Pano made from 36 HF (RAW), 50 mm, iso-125, f/9, 1/400 sec, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, scaling and sharpening in Irfanview.


Weather and pano are fine. It seems, you've been a bit into danger while taking these shots.

I am amazed. People very close to me were very near photographing puffins on the very same day. But only here on PP I get to see the context and surroundings. Cheers, Martin
