A day of brilliant sunshine and calm conditions in the Westfjords, Iceland. We had an early start for a hike to a hidden waterfall in Vallagil. We spotted orchids, carnivorous plants, and breeding waders en route. Our afternoon was spent with humpback whales, which were feeding on krill (as evidenced by their bright orange poo!) deep in Ísafjarðurdjúp.
