Land of Fire and Ice

I just returned from a three week visit to Iceland. During my trip I saw beautiful mountains, volcanoes, glaciers and waterfalls. Jokulsarlon is a glacial lagoon that is 250 meters deep and it has huge chunks of ice that break off the glacier Breiðamerkurjökul. Tourists can take a ride in one of the amphibian boats pictured below, but they can’t get too close to the icebergs because they sometimes roll over. I witnessed a number of icebergs the size of a house, slowly start to roll over and it was very impressive. I didn’t take the tour, choosing to save my money and explore on my own. Just me and several hundred noisy and divebombing Arctic terns. You can see more of my images from Iceland and Jokulsarlon in this gallery.
