iceland waterfall

We, too, like to have personal moments under hidden waterfalls. Don’t you?

harpa iceland

Harpa, the Reykjavík city opera house, takes its geometrical inspiration from the landscape and minerals of Iceland. It also happens to be a great place to stare pensively!

Did you know that the Icelandic word for a baby horse is related to the English word? The word is “folald.” It’s almost like the two languages share a deep historical connection!

The highlands of Iceland are evergreen subjects of photography. We swear, every picture we see of the highlands, we discover another color we’ve never seen before!

Just some aerial photography of a beautiful landscape, no big deal!

Svartifoss - Skaftafell waterfall iceland

Who doesn’t love a good basalt column and waterfall combo? In Iceland, they go together like harðfiskur and butter!

Black sand, a desolate wreck, rusty metal. These are just a few of our favorite things!

iceland puffin

Either Rita has quite the lens, or someone got quite close to a sea cliff! We don’t recommend the latter, but this is quite of pic of Iceland’s favorite little seabird.

iceland volcano 2022

We also loved visiting the Meradalir eruption. Maybe we saw each other out there?

Aurora and volcanic fumes at night, presumably photographed by the thunder god himself. Does it get much more Icelandic than this? No, no it does not.

Iceland’s color palette was actually selected by the settlers, who had famously good taste.
