Dancing My way though southern Iceland. I like to try to scare the tourist as a dance around on top of a hill overlooking the Glacier Lagoon, Jökulsárlón. Which I still can to say. The only word I know is þakka þér, luckly because they shorten it to þak, which sounds like Talk. Easy, I just say it were ever ever I go. Seems to be working so far. South Iceland on a 2 day overnight was amazing:
Do I look like a babushka in siberia or what! But no it is Jökulsárlón, the glacier Lagoon. The light was cloudy or would have been even bluer. The photos don’t do it justice. A beautiful location.
The northern Lights were a highlight. Out in the crisp/ cold night air. Messing with my tripod, the smell of sheep poo in the air, the sound of the ocean crashing out on the icy lagoon, the moon out. Then in streams the aurora started, so long I couldn’t look at the whole sky and see them end to end. It did feel like magic. Closer to something so much bigger. Then the dam lights on the buildings were “wreaking” my shots. I kept asking myself why they had all they lights when people come out to see the sky! I still don’t understand. I think it has something to do with it being so dark, Christmas lights are huge up here. And when I am not trying to enjoy the Aurora the lights are really amazing as you drive throughout the country little farms lit up in the middle of frozen tundra. Lovely.
Having had tons of Rain the last two days, the ice was so clear. All the snow had been washed away, leaving clear, lovely ice. If it had been sunny it would have been amazing. Next time I hope I The wind is wicked strong and I am so grateful for the Baklava I bought. Wind proof, so worth it. Playing with the Camera was great fun, I tried for double exposer, but needed some practice.
