Seven months ago, this is what 11:30 p.m. looked like from my bed

Iceland's Westfjords

Blue Lagoon revisited

Blue Lagoon

@bluelagoonis #BlueLagoonIceland @Icelandair #mystopover

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.

9:06 p.m. in June in Iceland

Middle of nowhere in Iceland's Westfjords

I don’t know exactly where I was when I took today’s photo. I was somewhere between Látrabjarg and Dynjandi.

Waterfall into the North Atlantic Ocean

North Atlantic Ocean on a warm day

So the title is a bit of a misnomer, but if you look really carefully you can see the waterfall, in the distance (upper right section of this photograph), dumping into the ocean. The location for this photo is Port Arnarstapi, and this was a warm day for Iceland.
