Glacier Lagoon

Crystal Cave, Iceland

Iceland is a land of beautiful extremes, from some of the Earth’s most active volcanos to massive glaciers that dominate the landscape. With glaciers covering 11% of the country one is never far from ice, making Iceland one of the best places in the world where you can easily get up close to a glacier. Sólheimajökull, located 2 hours from Reykjavik and near the popular tourist route of the Golden Circle, is perhaps the most accessible of Iceland’s glaciers.

Seljalandsfoss Photograph by Amnon Eichelberg, My Shot This shot was taken during our family tour to Iceland. This waterfall is called Seljalandsfoss. During this trip we used a motor home, so we camped about 500 meters from the beautiful waterfall. I took this image during sunset before our dinner at 10 p.m.
