I had decided to be at Fjallsárlón (glacial lake) for sunrise the next day.  So I decided to go there in the afternoon to ensure there was an overnight place for the campervan and no problems getting in and out.  This is the view across Fjallsárlón to Fjallsjökull glacier. (For location, see the map in the Hofn to Jökulsárlón post).

We saw a wide angle view of Fjallsjökull (glacier) in the previous image and this is clearly not that, so we must be looking across nearby Breiðsárlón (glacial lake) to Breiðamerkurjökull (glacier) (which empties into the Jökulsárlón lagoon).

It’s raining now.  There are a few traces of raindrops on the lens at the bottom of the image.

And now it’s clear again.  A sudden five-minute weather change?  Well no, actually it is now nearly sixteen hours later, at the next morning and before the dawn.  Not much in the way of further comment required for following images, I think.

Finally, a view from further out upon leaving.  I think I am halfway back to the main road.

  1. […] the beauty of his work could easily fool you into thinking magic was involved. This picture is from his most recent post during his travels through Fjallsárlón, Iceland. I think the weirdest part is the simple fact […]

  2. Of course my favorite is the stormy sky next underneath the rainbow.
