🇮🇸 #diament_Iceland Это был заключительный день перед вылетом. Часть вещей уже была отдана в Рейкьявике, оставалось отдать палатку с ковриками доброму самаритянину возле аэропорта, оставить машину на стоянке и улететь. И вот, когда пересыщенность видами и впечатлениями уже зашкаливала, всё-таки я добрался до этого места на юге полуострова Рейкьянес, где также находится знаменитая Blue Lagoon. И это оказалось отличной жирной точкой всего путешествия. Даже не точкой, а восклицательным знаком!!! 😊 Там таааакой маяк, там такие скалы и островки!!! Там вонючие гейзеры и лавовые поля!! И эти два персонажа мне очень понравились )🌋 🇬🇧 Silhouettes 👥 ★ #Исландия #Iceland #Rejkjavik #Рейкьявик #Atlantic #силуэт #silhouette #icelandnature #instaiceland #versatile_photos_ #igiceland #ig_iceland #unlimitediceland #icelandscape #visiticeland #topicelandphoto #RvkFoto

A few nights ago as every year the Search and Rescue put on a fundraiser and an lightshow over the glacier lagoon. First time doing fireworks photograph didn't go as planned but there is always a next time.

'Ice Ice Baby'⁠ ⁠ Diamond Beach in Iceland is one of my favourite places, and every time I visit it is never the same. ❄️🇮🇸⁠ ⁠ Sometimes the beach is packed with ice 'diamonds' and sometimes it's empty. ⁠ Depending on the wind direction the ice might have washed up on either the west or east side of the river.⁠ And the light is never the same - in winter you can shoot the sunrise and sunset over the ice on the beach while in summer you have the sun in your back. ⁠ ⁠ A magical place and photographer's paradise!⁠ ⁠ We still have a few spots left on or Winter Photography Workshops in November 2019 and February 2020. These 5 days together will include visiting iconic sites in south east Iceland including the Diamond Beach as well as ice caves, Vestrahorn and the Glacier Lagoon. Click on the LINK IN BIO for details, or DM if you have any questions.⁠ ____________________________________________________⁠ ⁠ Toys:⁠ Canon 16-35mm Mk3 on a Canon 5D Mark IV body⁠ @NisiFiltersUS CPL + 3 Stop Soft Grad⁠ Vertex Wireless Shutter Release⁠ @ReallyRightStuff BH-40 Ball Head + L-Plate⁠ @GitzoInspires GT4543LS Carbon Fiber Tripod⁠ @Vallerret Markhof Pro 2 Photography Gloves⁠ ⁠ Programs used for post-processing:⁠ Adobe Lightroom Classic⁠ Adobe Photoshop CC 2019⁠ Nik Color Efex Pro 4⁠ Exposure X4⁠ ⁠ #VikingInternationalPhotoTours #SiggiPhoto #canon_photos #iceland #southiceland #diamondbeach #sunrise_and_sunsets #splendid_xposure #longexpoelite #toplongexposure #wheniniceland #discovericeland #ig_iceland #mynorthadventure #mystopover #hiddeniceland #offtoiceland #topicelandphoto #wonderlusticeland #icelandtrip #visiticeland #exploreiceland #icelandadventure #inspiredbyiceland #icelandscape #icelandicnature #iceicebaby #chasingice #igsunset #sunsetpics

The Falls One of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland is Godafoss. This image taken at the foot of the falls can be quite tricky to get mostly due to the spray coming from the falls. Keeping the filters and lens shielded until ready to shoot was a priority. The little bit of raised rock provides an ample foreground interest. All my images are available as prints on my website.

Сижу в машине, вдруг подходит мужчина и начинает открывать дверь 😳 Тут вся моя доброжелательность вмиг улетучилась. Я помогла ему открыть шлагбаум, но попросила не врываться без стука. Как вы защищаете свои границы? 💛

ISLANDE Cette petite église beaucoup trop mignonne ce trouve dans la ville de Vík ! C’est fou comment on dirait que j’ai dessiné cette église. Le contraste entre le blanc, bleu, vert et rouge se marie tellement 😍. J’ai adoré cet endroit en plus vous avez une vue sur toute la ville ce qui rend ce coin encore plus agréable ! Et on en parle de ce ciel bleue que j’avais en Islande alors qu’ici à Paris depuis mon retour je n’ai que de la pluie 😂.

The Kerid Crater was the first natural sight we saw in Iceland. As we walked up to it, I was kind of like “This is it. Is Iceland going to be as beautiful as it seems?” And the answer was yes. ✨ • • • #kerid #keridcrater #crater #nature #naturephotography #travel #icelandtravel #inspiredbyiceland #everydayiceland #earthlandscape #wonderfulworld #icelandair #mystopover #wonderlusticeland #topicelandphoto #guidetoiceland #bestoficeland #igersiceland #roamnation #sheisnotlost #aussieabroad #wanderlust #bustraveliceland #ngtuk

🇮🇸 #diament_Iceland И еще одно повторное место. Здесь у меня уже есть фотка именно с этого места, но зимой.

Icelanders 💙 their geothermal waters. Not only are they used in thermal baths and as hot water in their households, but they’re the source of the majority of the electricity consumed in Iceland. They even use it to warm up greenhouses to grow produce as well as heating up the streets so they don’t get so slippery because of the ice. Not to mention, it’s pretty AF! #iceland #europe #travel #travelphotography #iceland 🇮🇸 #icelandtravel #icelandtrip #icelandnature #iceland_photography #geyser #geology #guidetoiceland #icelandadventure #icelandicnature #loves_iceland #discovericeland #traveliceland #ig_iceland #topicelandphoto #landscape

These horses are actually sleeping!!! 😴😴😴 Did you know that horses can sleep both standing up and lying down. They can doze and enter light sleep while standing, an adaptation from life as a prey animal in the wild. Horses are able to sleep standing up because a "stay apparatus" in their legs allows them to relax their muscles and doze without collapsing. Horses require approximately two and a half hours of sleep, on average, in a 24-hour period. Horses sleep better in groups, some animals will sleep while others stand guard to watch for predators.A horse kept entirely alone may not sleep well because its instincts are to keep a constant eye out for danger. Horses must lie down to reach REM sleep. They only have to lie down for an hour or two every few days to meet their minimum REM sleep requirements. #travelgirl #travelwithme #womanwhoexplore #explorewithme #exploreeverything #exploretheworld #exploreiceland #icelandichorses #iclandtrip #icelandichorse #guidetoiceland #icelandtravel #unlimitediceland #wheniniceland #absoluteiceland #whyiceland #disvovericeland #iceland_tourist #everydayiceland #visiticeland #icelandroadtrip #topicelandphoto #icelandichorsesofinstagram #instagramers #stayandwander #magical_shots_ #magical_bature

💧 Natural Wonders of Iceland 💧 There are several geysers in the Haukadalur valley. The most famous of them gave name to all geysers around the world. Today, Strokkur is the most reliable one, erupting every 6-10 minutes. It is incredible to stand close to such a force of nature. When it erupted, the hot water column reached the sun and cast a shadow to where I was standing. I particularly like the flare and lighting in this photo.

Iceland - Viti (meaning 'Hell' ) in Krafla is an explosion crater. It is one of the two most famous Viti craters in Iceland, the other being Viti in Askja. This particular Viti was formed in 1734 by a massive eruption in the Krafla volcano, known as Myvatnseldar, that lasted for five years. The diameter of the crater is around 300 meters and it has a green lake inside it. Krafla is a caldera of about 10 km in diameter with a 90 km long fissure zone, in the north of Iceland in the Mývatn region. Its highest peak reaches up to 818 m and it is 2 km in depth. There have been 29 reported eruptions in recorded history. One of Iceland's most beloved poets, Jonas Hallgrimsson, wrote the poem 'Viti' inspired by the crater, which was later set to choral music by Icelandic composer Jon Leifs. This impressive piece is now set to have its first cd recording, performed by the Icelandic University Choir. Up in the hills north of Hverir, the area around the Krafla volcano has been intermittently erupting for the last three thousand years and shows no signs of cooling down yet. The access road runs north off the Ringroad, passing right under piping from Leirbotn power station on the way. The station harnesses steam vents to generate power; these are what you can hear roaring away like jet engines up on Krafla’s flanks. Krafla itself (818m ) was last active in the 1720s during a period known as the Mývatn Fires, which began when the west side of Krafla exploded in 1724, forming a new crater named Viti (Hell ). The road ends at a car park in front of Viti, now a deep, aquamarine crater lake on Krafla’s steep brown gravel slopes; a slippery track runs around the rim through atmospheric low cloud and plenty of real steam hissing out of bulging vents. #wonderlusticeland #wheniniceland #everydayiceland #iceland_tourist #icelandadvice #deliciousiceland #TopIcelandPhoto #WhyIceland #unlimitediceland #iceland #timeoutsociety @awesome shotz @nature geography @official_photography_hub #fglobe @natureofexistence #BestVacations #LiveTravelChannel #TravelingOurPlanet #travel #WeLiveToExplore #TheGlobleWanderer @vacations #me #eu

Godafoss Waterfall, Iceland - The Goðafoss waterfall (more accurately Goðafoss; pronounced "GO-thuh-foss" ) is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters. It is segmented into two main components while possessing an arcing semi-horseshoe shape, which we noticed when we viewed it from its top. In the year 1000 the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion Þorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall. Try to experience this waterfall from both sides of its banks. The east bank seems to provide a great deal of flexibility in terms of how you are able to view the falls. The west side seems to yield fewer views, but there was less walking involved to see the falls. The east side is better yet strangely enough, since most of the tourist traffic seems to be on the opposite side of the river (the west side ). From a small car park near a restroom area on the east bank, you are able to hike upstream a short distance until you have a choice of going down to the river level to view the falls from its base or to go up to a bluff where we could see the falls from its top. Since the walks are short, try to do them both. When you walk in the downstream direction closer to the Ring Road, you will notice that there is a footbridge (providing convenient access to the west bank ) as well as a more frontal view of Geitafoss, which was a smaller waterfall further downstream of Godafoss. #wonderlusticeland #wheniniceland #everydayiceland #iceland_tourist #icelandadvice #deliciousiceland #TopIcelandPhoto #WhyIceland #unlimitediceland #iceland #timeoutsociety @awesome shotz @nature geography @official_photography_hub #fglobe @natureofexistence #BestVacations #LiveTravelChannel #TravelingOurPlanet #travel #WeLiveToExplore #TheGlobleWanderer @vacations #trip #waterfall

One of my favourite pictures from Iceland. I highly recommend to go to Seljalandsfoss as early as possible or during the summer as late as possible. Also a few 100 meters further you will find Gljúfrabúi - a waterfall which is hidden inside a cave! 🇮🇸🏔 • • • #iceland #roadtrip #travel #nature #icelandtravel #reykjavik #landscape #travelphotography #icelandic #love #photography #travelgram #visiticeland #wheniniceland #waterfall #ice #guidetoiceland #wanderlust #landscapephotography #adventure #icelandtrip #icelandincredible #topicelandphoto #photooftheday #naturephotography #mountains #exploreiceland #ig_iceland #icelandscape #happy
