Like being on the Moon

When you drive north of the volcano Hekla towards the area of Landmannalaugar you almost feel like being on the Moon. However I’m not completely sure, because I’ve not yet been to the Moon 😉

Standing behind Seljalandsfoss at sunset

This panoramic image was stitched from 5 images in landscape orientation. Taking the pictures was a challenging task, as it was a windy day and I had to clean my front lens several times before I had enough “clean shots” of the waterfall.

Ófærufoss in Eldgjá Canyon

This panoram shows Ófærufoss in Eldgjá canyon which is not easy to reach. You better have a 4×4 at hand because it is far away from Iceland’s main road! It can only be reached by an F- road and then by foot.
