Viking ship statue in Reykjavick
Iceland is a country of many waterfalls
The view as you approach to move behind. Notice how small the person is on the far side.
Hundreds of feet. These falls would be major attractions in the US, but in Iceland it's "just another waterfall."
Ice from the glacial lagoon melting on the beach in early morning
More icebergs in the cold early morning light
A modernistic lighthouse, automated now. There's no one home.
It's a rough and rocky coastline with many eroded arches.
Along the shoreline with the "viking boat" rock formation in the distance
An "ice fish" sits on the rocks as it slowly melts into the sea.
Pink clouds at sunrise as the surf washes over another chunk of glacial ice melting
There are many chunks of glacial ice caught here by the tide in the early morning light.
Inland- in the Highlands, the lave flows are covered with moss and grass
Obvious craters are everywhere in this volcanic land.
Yet the greens are magnificent contrasting sharply with the blacks
Lava, moss and old volcanic cones.....
The fields of green are dotted with lava and sheep everywhere
Moss in the river gives a yellow contrast to the green grass
The mineral content of the earth gives rise to deep dark colors
Reds and yellows contrast with the green of the moss and the blue sky reflected in the water
No wonder the country runs on hydroelectric and geothermal power without problems
Geothermal steam vents are widespread.
Beautiful blue ice in the lagoon beneath the glacier.
Geese swim placidly by
A red throated loon with her chick
One of the beautiful Icelandic girls, shy at first, but happy to welcome you to her country.
Small churches with small graveyards dot the countryside
Sunset near Snaefells Iceland
Ice in the lagoon glows in the evening light
