A JOURNEY TO GRIMSEY ISLAND, ICELAND – Neil Solomon
September 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for our very interesting monthly program and refreshments at the Remington Club II Retirement Center, 16916 Hierba Drive, Rancho Bernardo. This location is very near and south of Carver’s Steak & Chops Restaurant. There is a social period beginning at 6:30 pm with the meeting and program getting underway promptly at 7:00 pm.
Iceland is known for its glaciers, waterfalls, and the millions of breeding seabirds and migratory birds that call Iceland home from May to mid August. Although Iceland is perceived to be an “Arctic” country, only Grimsey Island, located 40 km north of the north coast of Iceland, touches the Arctic Circle. It just so happens that some of the best cliffs in the world for viewing and photographing the Atlantic Puffin are located on Grimsey. So journey with him from Reykjavik, north through the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to Akureyri and on to the ferry from Dalvik to Grimsey Island. Along the way we will see a sampling of the bird life that a Summer in Iceland, has to offer.
This is Neil’s 12th PAS Presentation. Neil has been photographing birds for 20+ years. His travels in search of birds to photograph, have taken him from Patagonia and the Falklands in the South to Alaska and Arctic Norway in the North and many locations between. His favorite shooting locations are probably the far North and Central/South America. The last few years he has been concentrating on photographing birds in flight. You can see his images on his website www.nsolomonphoto.com
