After Sunday’s post I realized that I had a lot more Iceland pictures I wanted to share with you. Over the course of 10 days I took almost a thousand pictures, here are my favorites:
The Blue Lagoon outside of Reykjavik. The water comes from a nearby geothermal power plant, is steaming hot and leaves your skin pillow smooth.
Barnafoss, one of the many gorgeous waterfalls in Iceland.
A traditional Icelandic turf-roofed house. Unfortunatly, even though settlers have lived in Iceland for a thousand years, very little of their architecture survives.
A bubbling hotpot of mud on the crust of Krafla volcano.
The desolate scene around one of Iceland’s several active volcanoes. The most recent eruption here was 1984.
Caught between snow and sky during a high altitude drive to Seyðisfjörður
Cereal-box perfect Puffins nesting on the island of Papey off Iceland’s East coast.
Eery blue icebergs floating in the Jökulsár Lagoon with Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier, in the background.
The gorgeous green little town of Vik, one of Southern Iceland’s major cities with a whopping 3000 inhabitants.
The beach at Vik. This picture was taken around 1 am and as you can see it was still quite light out.
