I have been to Iceland 3 times now and each time it just blows me away. I thought I would share a few of my favourites:

1. The stunning 'Blue Waterfall' Bruarfoss. A little jem a long way from the tourist trails

2. Háifoss. Iceland's second highest waterfall

3. Driving in the highlands you encounter alien landscapes.

4. Glacial rivers crossing the mountain tracks

5. Blue ice in the mist

6. The iconic Skógafoss

All of these were taken with a Pentax K3 or K5ii(s) and Pentax zoom lenses

I shall be returning next year to revisit these sites and find more 'off the tourist trail' locations.

I've also been bitten by Iceland. Did a 9 day road trip in June and I'm already planning a trip in April next year. Am very jealous of all you Northern hemisphere dwellers as it's a very long trip from the tip of Africa! Also love number 5 - Jokulsarlon lagoon?
