What is there to say about this magnificent country that hasn't already been said? Stark beauty, glaciers, powerful waterfalls, geothermal pools, Sigur Ros, lamb soup.. It's one of the few places that everyone who can visit should, because it's just so utterly unique. Visually, it's like leaving the planet.
I found myself with a week to kill before starting a new job so there was a lot to cram in. Too much. I didn't get a whole lot further than Reykjavik and the Golden Circle but that was enough for a good taste. Iceland is one of those places one could really dive in headlong and explore for years. It's completely different season to season and has several geologically distinct regions. There are more outdoor activities than you could ever get bored with and there's a cool Euro urban culture in Reykjavik with some pretty excellent live music venues and places to eat.
Here are a few photographs from my explorations in the southwestern corner of this country. I can't wait to go back and shoot more!
