Still on Day Five
Every time I open my Iceland folder I just find more images that I am in love with and want to share. I am not sure how long it will take me to go through all of my images, but I am hoping it will be before I start my adventure with these same wonderful ladies into the South Dakota Badlands this fall.
Just before we arrived at Vik Iceland, we stopped at Dyrholaey Lighthouse. Such a cool view it made it hard to move along down the road towards Vik. On the distant shore of the black beach you could see the stacks of Vik in the distance. I would have liked to walk the beach but due to the weather and time restraints we couldn’t. There were several crazy people that were out on the edges of the rocks trying to catch a picture of the crashing waves. Shortly after we left the beach was closed as a woman got swept out to sea (Article). Water is just one of those things that has immense power that always has to be respected. I think we take that for granted here in Minnesota because most of our lakes are pretty tame even on the roughest of days. Yes, we do have Lake Superior, which has its own unique disposition, however, most of us only experience local lakes.
Six days in Iceland just isn’t enough, by time you recover from the jet lag, find your accommodations and get your bearings you’ve already lost a day. Then it seems like you need to pull over every couple of miles because you find something unique and different that requires you to capture an image or just revel in Iceland’s beauty.
