Waterfall Wednesday

Bjarnarfoss

No Iceland for me this summer. I’m hoping to book my flights to Denmark in the next month. Side trips will likely include Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic (again), and either Germany or the Netherlands.

BTW, I had this spot, on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, all to myself for the half hour or so I was there. If this waterfall was anywhere else in the world I’m guessing there would have been at least a hundred people there. The crowd, or lack thereof, makes a huge difference in the experience.

Blue Lagoon revisited

Blue Lagoon

Iceland’s most famous hot springs are also its most expensive, most crowded, and closest to the KEF airport. I had more enjoyable experiences at other hot springs in Iceland, but I still recommend the Blue Lagoon if, and only if, you get there before the crowds do.

Solstice season

Arnarfjörður from Dynjandi

Today’s photo was taken a few days before the summer solstice, after 10 p.m., on a night that never became dark*, in northwestern Iceland.

Today we are a few days before winter solstice, and I long for those long, warm days of summer.

* More than an hour later, on the same day, at 11:30 p.m., my world looked like this.
