Seljavalallaug is an old pool located about an hour and a half away from Reykjavik. To reach it, you have to walk for about 10 min, with no cell phone signal, but it's an easy walk and the surroundings are beautiful. I wonder if Icelanders think tourists are crazy for wanting to go there, because while the scenery is worth it, the pool is taken care once in a while by volunteers. Some people are not respectful and leave their trash behind, and the bottom of the pool is slimy (by what I'm being told. I didn't actually swim in it).
When planning my trip to Iceland, Seljavalallaug was on my list of locations for photo shoots. Also, I really wanted to work with this Icelandic model I had worked before. But this time, it would be have a more modern feel to this shoot. Bryndis was great, she never complained despite the tough weather conditions, and I got some great photos from that day!
