Hrísey is a small island off the north coast of Iceland, situated approximately 35 kilometres north of Akureyri. The island is only is about 7.5 km long by 2.5 km wide and has a population of approximately 120 people. Its connected to the mainland by a ferry service to Árskógssandur, a fifteen-minute sailing.

Iceland isn’t just about landscapes and nature when it comes to photography. On island Hrísey in North Iceland I found this lovely old Oldsmobile F85. I have always been attracted to old cars, especially if they are like this one, worn and torn. I made this using the Nikon D3x with the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G lens, shot at f/4.5. I still love the character of the ageing D3x. This camera was a game changer for me when I tried it. It marked my switch from the Canon system over to Nikon.
