Default Iceland - Part I

Iceland was the first stop of our trip. There is some shots from it :

Reykjavik, as seen from the Saga Museum:




The Saga Museum itself ... which looks like a couple of fuel tanks put together in the middle .... Hey ! Why not?




Inside the Museum ... I liked the architecture inside. The shot is showing the table from the restaurant on the top floor.




Part of the Djomin Park :



The Mid-Atlantic Ridge comes to the surface in Iceland ... and it shows!

At the front of the shot, you are basically ... in North-America while you are in Europe on the other side of the Lake!

... and you get a lot of the "Magic Hour" from (probably) mi-May to mi-August ... since the sun doesn't really set or rise ....

All are really good but the foreground in that last one really is what I picture when I think of the mid-Atlantic ridge. Moving the western and eastern hemispheres apart at 1 cm. a year IIRC.

Thanks Steven,

It is kind of weird to think that we were is Russian a month ago! We never went that far and it was kind of our honeyoon .... 13 years later

I even posted a couple of shots in Facebook ... With the task to my friends to find out where we were ... They had fun finding it!

I probably still have 2 or 3 posts to do ... before coming back to "normal"

Regards,

Gilles

Let me know when you find out what "Normal" is..!!!
The ridge shot makes one think. (and gives me headaches) Coming apart like that makes you realise why there's so much volcanic activity. Hey something has to fill the gap.

Enjoyed your photos and your trip. Iceland is on my bucket list, has been for a while.
Thanks for posting.
