Wild and rugged Iceland – part II

...continued (Part I)The glaciers cover big areas of Iceland. If you look at a map you can easily identify them as big white spots. From the glaciers the ice is pressed downwards forming big and long outlets and due to the global heating these outlets have retreated by several kilometers. This is clearly visible at Jókulsarlon where a glacier outlet has retreated by 13 km and left a huge lagoon filled with icebergs.  When ice from the glacier breaks off, it floats in the lagoon until... continue reading

Wild and rugged Iceland – part I

If you are a football fan (also known as soccer in some parts of the world) there is a good chance that you are following the European Championship 2016. In that case I am quite certain that you have also noticed the impressive results of Iceland. Impressive because they are playing against countries with more registered football players than the total population of Iceland (330,000). But what is it that makes this people and country so special?  I had the pleasure of visiting Iceland recently... continue reading

Iceland, the land of waterfalls and old Norse Gods

Icelanditis

I spent seven days in Iceland this summer, and I think I've caught Icelanditis.This syndrome occurs when you get obsessed with the country and after some research, I have found that it is a frequent occurrence with visitors to that far away land.Symptoms include such things as driving your friends crazy with non-stop talking about how wonderful everything is there, like the people who haven't really totally shaken off their viking origins, the amazing food from delicious lamb soup to the freshest... continue reading

500 images goal after Iceland trip!

I'm glad I reached the goal of 500 uploaded images, utilising the last fifty pictures taken this summer during a trip to Iceland.For those, like me, does not have the courage to face the exploration of the interior of this magnificent volcanic island with a jeep and hiking equipment, remains the option of simply doing the island tour with a regular car. I think most of the Iceland attractions can be seen even just doing this ride along almost the entire circumference of the island.Arriving... continue reading

100 images on DT - finally! And watch for Iceland...Sweden...Estonia..

In January I had my 100th sale on DT, got a payout, and had 99 photos on DT. Planned , to easily make it an even 100.Well... I'm getting another payout and had close to 100 more sales here, but I've been so busy I didn't upload much ...anywhere. Couple of rejects, then uploaded one photo before I went away (more on that later) - and now I have exactly 100 photos on DT to coincide with another payout.I can't help thinking how regular payouts would be if I uploaded regularly. I spendway... continue reading

Volcanos in Iceland...

Last weekend we had a volcanic eruption here in Iceland.A place in Vatnajokull glacier called Grimsvotn had erupted with massive ash clouds bursting from the crater.Unfortunately this was no tourist show and the ash spread very far and like last year interrupted flight plans across Europe though not as seriously as last year.When I woke up monday morning to go to the gym I too had a present waiting for me. The ash cloud had reached the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, and the thin ash layer was... continue reading
