  • Veiðivötn area in the Highlands – #Iceland

    Veiðivötn area in the Highlands – #Iceland

    The beautiful area of Veiðivötn, just northeast of Landmannalaugar, is an entanglement of small desert lakes in a volcanic basin, a continuation of the same fissure that produced Laugahraun in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve. The crater formations here are of a true extraterrestrial character and environment something truly unique. The contrast between black sand and gin clear waters is very unique. This part of the country is among the youngest (1477) and wildest pearls of the central highlands. It comprises about 50 lakes of different sizes, most of which are so-called crater lakes. The area is about 20 km long and 5 km wide and has a southwest - northeast direction. The craters and the lakes lie in two rows. You have to ford the small river between the two Fossvotn lakes to get into the area. Most of the lakes are fed and discharged underground because the lava fields and the scoria are very permeable.

    Highlands of Iceland. Shot from around Langisjór - Documenting

    I really enjoy traveling up in the Highlands of Iceland, and I try to do it as often as possible. The loneliness up there opens up my senses to the surroundings and I’m constantly reminded of that “less is more”. The light and colors play a big role and you see frames that you can’t detect if you don’t give your self-time to look around. In this case I stopped the car, took a nice walk with my camera gear and I witnessed unbelievable beauty in the empty landscape. It’s incredible to see how the nature shapes and is in constant construction all the time. The forces of nature have no limits and you can’t see them if you are on a constant move. The beauty is all around you in different shapes and forms. Go out there, stop at some point and its there.

    In the Highlands of Fjallabak Nyrðri - #Iceland

    Fjallabak refer to Fjallabak Nature Reserve, North Fjallbaksleið. The name 'Fjallabak' literally translates to 'The Back of the Mountains', or 'Mountain Back'. Fjallabak Nature Reserve ("Friðland að Fjallabaki") is an area in the Icelandic Highlands surrounding the popular hiking destination of Landmannalaugar, protected since 1979. The entire area is more than 500 metres above sea level and characterised by colourful mountains, geothermal valleys and volcanic activity. The colour is due to the rhyolite and obsidian making the ground appears green, blue, pink, red and yellow. Lava fields, rivers and lakes also make their mark on this Nature Reserve. A popular natural hot spring is located at Landmannalaugar camping ground, where visitors will frequently bathe. A mountain hut is also found in the area, perfect for guests to book overnight stays, use the kitchen and the bathroom facilities.
  • Fossabrekkur in the river Ytri Rangá – Documenting #Iceland

    Fossabrekkur in the river Ytri Rangá – Documenting #Iceland

    In some unexpected places in Iceland, you can find a small spot that sticks out, even a small oasis. One of these locations is Fossabrekkur near the turn to Fjallabaksleið Nyrðri and Dómadalsleið Highland road where two small rivers meet by the source of the river Rangá. It is located at the root of the volcano Hekla not far from the waterfalls Tröllkonuhlaup. The area is a vast spread of sand and volcanic ash with some creeks and rivers. In the middle of nowhere as it seems, you will find this refreshing oasis, Fossabrekkur. What makes it interesting is the beauty of this small spot. At a small slope by the river, a collection of vegetation has found roots around a few small waterfalls leaking down the slope and this is what makes it so interesting, the vegetation and the clear water.

    Morning sun from Sjónarhóll farm in Vogar - Documenting #Icela

    Sometimes we don’t have to go far to see the beauty of the morning sunrise. I went to abandoned farmhouse near my home called “Sjónarhóll” which is located at Vatnsleysuströnd and is only 5 minutes away. I was hoping to catch the Golden sunrise and have the meadow in front with its long autumn strews as a foreground. Well I caught what I wanted. The farm Sjónarhóll was built 1929 by the couple Magnús Jónsson and Erlendsínu Helgadóttur.

    Meteorite falling from the Sky - Documenting #Iceland

    A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the atmosphere to reach the surface of a planet or moon. When the object enters the atmosphere, various factors such as friction, pressure, and chemical interactions with the atmospheric gases cause it to heat up and radiate that energy. It then becomes a meteor and forms a fireball, also known as a shooting star or falling star; astronomers call the brightest examples "bolides". Meteorites vary greatly in size. For geologists, a bolide is a meteorite large enough to create a crater.
