ICELAND, Kirkjufell (2019) - Iceland is a marvelous travel destination, a perfect road trip country, dotted with waterfalls, natural hot springs, geysirs, dramatic mountain ranges, volcanoes, glaciers, ice & lava caves, black and white beaches, ice lakes, rough cliffs and all kinds of stunning landscapes and colours, white nights in summer and northern lights in winter, a place that sometimes makes you feel small, calms and humbles you deeply with a raw archaic beauty. I really enjoyed driving in Iceland because the scenery around you is simply enchanting and constantly changing. Now and then I truely caught myself smiling, shaking my head in disbelief and almost laughing out loud while looking around and thinking to myself how fucking damn beautiful this greenblue planet of ours is. Iceland had been on my list for quite a while, especially when it became a "Game of Thrones" filming location, but due to several reasons I never made it there. So in a way I have to thank "Blue" for a kind of "making me" visit Iceland this june, rather spontaneously. I only visited the southwestern part of the island and drove up to the "Snaefellsnes Peninsula", 3 hours northwest of Reykjavik with the famous "Mt. Kirkjufell", the most photographed scenery in Iceland... and as I really liked that place and was staying in a town just a mile away I dropped by several times and at different daytimes (morning, afternoon and nighttime) whenever I passed by or couldn't sleep, just to have a sit, a smoke, some thinking and listening to some music or just the wind. The second pic was taken one hour after midnight as days are not getting totally dark in Iceland during the so called "white nights" in early summer. Anyway, I became a huge fan of this little island-country and will come back!
