Heimaey's Glow by marianne-lim Heimaey's Glow by marianne-lim
Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands)
Southern Iceland

The Westman Islands are much more accessible now, thanks to a new ferry port that only require half an hour of travel across the sea. The largest island, Heimaey, is known for birdlife and the harbour that was improved by the volcanic eruption of Eldfell in 1973.

This image was taken one evening on the north-west coast as we hunted for puffins to photograph.

PS: Been a little lax in participation on DA lately, have been sick the past couple of days with a horrible cold, but in other bigger news my husband Dylan and I are expecting the first addition to our family in late August. Needless to say, the nausea and general unwellness kept me from being motivated!! Into the second trimester now, so it has eased up a LOT, thank goodness! Just thought you'd all like to know. ;)

Hi Magda,
For the 7D we are using the original Sigma 10-20mm, and on the 5DII we are using the Canon 16-35mm f2.8 L lens. :)

Congrats Marianna: with this great photo, and with the great news you shared!

I had the change to see the Vestmannaeyjar very briefly a couple of years ago, but I'm determined to head back there in the near future...
