These are tremendous, and not just because of the content. Iceland has been over covered because it's so dramatic, and almost everything there has been photographed to death this century. These are genuinely excellent.

I particularly love the shot of the sea ice and the clarity and luminance of the ice.

not to belittle your pictures which are very good,
-Iceland's one of those places where you just cannot go wrong with a camera.
As long as you don't insist on street photography

its good for street as well-especially lines for sausages (or as they call them - pilsa) are fun places...

Nick, beautiful images!

Edit: A question - Were these taken in high-res mode?

No, I really haven't played around with high-res mode.

Iceland really living up to its name in your excellent images, Nick. I have found the 45/1.8 to be a great Olympus travel companion on my motorbike rides, but I'm guessing you weren't on a bike there in January

In a sense, it actually didn't live up to it's name. Considering we were there in mid-winter, it was surprisingly 'warm' (around 8C most days) and very wet - rain every day which only changed to snow the night before we left. More what I would expect from a Tasmanian winter than an island on the edge of the Arctic. Word from the glacier guides was that North Atlantic 'summer' storms are becoming more common in winter.

Here's some shot in portrait orientation.
