With Liefur

Very blue early morning light

An icy, slushy parking lot

Ţingvellir - home of the original parliament

Churning blue waters

Stark basalt cliffs

Site of one of the old booths

View from the Law Rock (Lögberg)

Feeling a bit north of the wall

Up into the rift

View from the top of the Almannagjá rift

A break in the clouds

Looking at icy Ţingvallavatn, Iceland's largest natural lake

Stubborn grasses

Steam vents by Geysir

Litli Geysir - so cute

Waiting for the next spurt

Strokkur churning the waters



Draining back to the underground cavern

Tiniest geyser of them all

Geysir itself, nice and calm

Looking back toward Strokkur

Definitely looks volcanic

Another Strokkur eruption

Vibrant waters

Crusty edges

Mineral deposits

Peering down into the underground chambers

Continuing its show

Gullfoss, the largest waterfall in Europe

Upper falls

Wider view

Sun near its mid-day peak

Sloping down to the falls

The lower falls

Creating lots of mist

The whole thing

First glimpse of Seljalandsfoss

Ice crusted Seljalandsfoss

A bit down from the main falls

Side trickle

Mostly ice in this section

One house at the edge of the grass

Gas prices that end in 8/10s instead of 9/10s!

A very standard looking Icelandic church

Reynisdrangur sea stacks at Vík

Rough waters

Black sand beach and sea foam

Sand-crusted snow

Looking back at industrial Vík

Black and tan
