Photographer's Note

Photographing puffins is a relatively easy thing to do at Látrabjarg. Note the white line that follows the edge of the cliff. If you cross this line you should be laying flat on the ground so that you spread your weight. The edge of the cliff might crumble under your weight if you don't.The edges are fragile and loose and it’s a long way to fall if you are not careful.

The puffin in the foreground seems just as interested in viewing the puffins as the photographers are.

This westernmost point of Iceland is a line of several cliffs, 14 kilometres long and up to 441 m high. Safe from foxes, the birds provide stunning photographic opportunities from close range. Látrabjarg is the most visited tourist attraction in the Westfjords. The cliffs are easily accessible by car. Once you have been here, the memories will not fade.
