Greetings from Iceland! I arrived only a few days ago and already I have amassed hundreds of photos. It was painful to narrow it down to just a few! I have fallen head over hiking boots in love with this country and since the moment I stepped off the plane I’ve been scheming my inevitable return. Onto some eye candy and a taste of what is to come!
The city of Reykjavik is visually overwhelming. I can walk but a few feet without having to whip out my camera.
Within a few hours of getting off the plane, we were soaking in The Blue Lagoon. We arrived as it opened and had the place almost to ourselves. And no, I’m not naked — it’s a strapless top!
Icelandic horses are beautiful and genetically unique. Riding one was a fantastic way to see a little bit of the countryside.
Yet another way to explore Reykjavik’s surroundings: by bicycle! The sun does not set on Iceland in the summer, and this photo was taken around 9pm.
These last two photos don’t really go together but I couldn’t resist sharing them (my blog layout really doesn’t allow for vertical photos). On the left is the Blue Lagoon in the full swing of tour group madness, and on the right is Harpa, Reykjavik’s brand new waterfront performing arts center.
Which do you think should be Photo of the Week?
