It’s like nowhere else I’ve ever been. I definitely recommend a visit! But maybe go in summer because it was REAL cold. x

BOooooooooooooooooootiful photography, the blue is such a start contrast to the copper red, and I love how you catch texture and bits like that…

SO absolutely breathtaking… I’d love to know more about your trip – about the culture, the food, nightlife if you partook… Iceland is in my top 5 places to visit ASAP!

Absolutely stunning photographs!

It’s nice to see Iceland with a bit more colour (the ground was covered in snow when I visited).

How did you cope with the awful smell?

I tried to stand downwind mostly, but it was pretty bad haha! x

So beautiful! What is that bright blue pool, is it a lake? Sorry my Iceland knowledge isn’t very good…
Third photo down makes me :’D

sarah replied over 9 years ago.

It’s a small hot water pool called Blesi (I think). It’s just as blue in real life! x

Ever since visiting New Zealand last year and seeing all the sulphur parks I have been FASCINATED with all this stuff – it is so incredibly beautiful and alien – and your photos really do capture how awe-inspiring it all is!!!

Can’t wait until the day I can visit there!

Such a coincidence that I took a nearly identical photo (Geysir close up) when I was there, but on a much cloudier day it seems:

I love the colors you got. It’s funny that people don’t even believe that Iceland truly is that saturated and colorful without much Photoshop adjustment.

Great photo of Strokkur erupting! We got a few, but it was raining so hard, it was difficult to stay there too long to get more exploring done.

Did you enjoy any Skyrr? My husband will only eat that now, and we have to buy it for $3USD at the fancy market, because he is obsessed.

PS. I miss Iceland. I need to go back! If you have a chance, take a trip up to Stykkisholmur in Snefaellsnes, you won’t regret it!

Is it possible to have nostalgic feelings for a place you have never been?
