Tourists in Iceland

Overheard at a waterfall: "get it without any people."

It's pretty common practice to compose photographs that suggest you are the only human around. In Iceland, there are many places where you may truly be the only person in sight. But, at the major natural sites with large parking lots, restrooms, and coffee shops, there were many tourists. And I saw many of them taking photographs which omitted their fellow travelers.

I too took my fair share of photographs during this trip which intentionally cropped out people. But I also wanted to capture some of the tourism around me. Here are some of my favorites.
