Our visit in Reykjavík will be the last day in Iceland before traveling back home.
Reykjavik with a lot of nice colored houses.
Going south again...
Our camp ground for the night. A nice awaking as we see that it was n great winter-sport area. Behind the Skogafoss waterfall a nice valley with several small waterfalls, invite to go for a walk The Laugavegur trekking route should be in summer a very nice adventure Skogafoss Skogafoss Skogafoss Solheimajökull from above Solheimajökull Solheimajökull Solheimajökull Solheimajökull with the lot of glacier trekking tourists Solheimajökull
The night of the nights at the famous Kirkjufell mountain. We don´t know how many pictures were made of these nice mountain, but we also want to capture the moment when the Aurora is moving over that hill.
Some illumination of the foreground from passing cars at the road
What a nice day at Snaefellsness. The sun is shining and the landscape at that Peninsula is great with the Snaefellsjökul glacier in the middle of these natur conservation park. We startet at Budir and go round the coastline remembering the Jules Verne book " journey to the center of the earth" where the tour starts close to the Snaefellsjökul glacier in a cave named Vatnshellir and end at the Stromboli volcano an island close to Sizilia...but that is not our planed route.
Closing the circle of the ring road No1 by driving from Hvistikur to Snaefellsness again, we decide to go on the south side of Snaefellsness, because the forecast for cloud coverage was a little bit better than on the north side and we have an new chance to see some Aurora. Beside the street we see some small houses of the trolls what should be a good sign for the night.
The sky is burning in different colors
Small church with Aurora
Next stop should be Hvitserkur, where we expect some nice Aurora in the night, because the forecast was very good with KP6 and with the nice Hvitsergur stone in the foreground it should be a nice show.
With an stop over for a sleep at Egilsstadir, we planned to drive to the Myvatn lake ("meaning of myvatn = Moskito lake") but fortunately not in winter.
A very nice area not only for photographers is the stockness area close to the small town of Höfn.
