As I keep going through my hard drives searching for pictures that are buried deep within them and almost forgotten, I came across this one. I don't remember all the details about why we stopped at this particular spot while driving around Iceland, but looking back, I'm glad I did. I remember that it rained most of the day and probably stopped there to stretch our legs for a little bit. Since our time is limited when we travel, I always take my camera with me looking for any sort of interesting subjects to snap a pic. I went with a long exposure to sort of take advantage of all the mist and fog and give it some character. I think it came out good. What do you think?
On our trip to Iceland we had the opportunity to go around this beautiful country. During our journey we stopped at Akureyri. This city is known as the Capital of Northern Iceland. It is a place full of beauty.

This photo was a consolation prize as I expected to be able to portray this emblematic place accompanied by the lights of the Aurora Borealis. The forecast for them was favorable but mother nature decided that it would not happen. Anyway, it is a place worth admiring and its beauty is everywhere.
With so many nature wonders to admire in Iceland, it's really difficult to stay focused while driving around the country. It is said that Iceland has close to 100,000 waterfalls! This one I found while driving to Lake Myvatn, it was litterally on the side of the road, so beautiful worth stopping to get a better glimpse of it. I had a great time admiring this stunning display of nature perfection. Enjoy!!!
Despite the temperature being low, mornings like this bring everything to life. Autumn weather in Iceland is predictably unpredictable. Overall though, the most likely two experiences you will have are clear, cold, still and sunny, or stormy, warm, rainy and windy. Hopefully you’ll discover both during your stay – because while clear weather is always preferred, a good Icelandic autumn storm can be really exciting and invigorating.
During my visit to this magnificent country the weathe was stormy but nonetheless, the scenery was breath taking. The autumn colors from the foliage really stood out and contrasted beautifuly with the gray skies. Take a look and inmerse yourself in this picture. Enjoy!!!
