Here we have a wondrous landscape, almost entirely black and white, but with tantalising hints of colours.

I was driving down Jökulheimaleið, towards Jökulheimar and the glacier view when I realised I was on a flat ridge and no longer on the road.

This wasn’t a problem though.  I was in snow and could see my tyre tracks and turned around till I found the road again.

At that stage I turned back and never did get to Jökulheimar .

    Such incredible landscapes Murray. I envy your experience and youth to be able to do it. I wonder, did you shoot in b/w or are these manipulated.

    Absolutely wonderful shapes, lines and patterns made by the snow (and lack thereof). I’m glad you made it to this amazing place even if you didn’t get to Jokulheimar.
