Mascot of July: Iceland

To quote the Pirates of the Caribbean (the ride not the movie), "Iceland, say you? Aye, say I"

A daily picture of Iceland - most from our trips.

Day One
This is our picture of : Hraunfossar
Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. Wikipedia
And an Extra for the Side Picture: 
 This Glymur (from our pictures). It was the tallest waterfall in Iceland when we went.  It has now been surpassed by Morsafoss due to a glacier melting created a new tallest fall.
