Wanderlust: I c e l a n d, sothwest
2013. Went to Iceland with my best friend. Every day we got up early and had morning coffee in our Reykjavik hotel before we jumped on a bus to seize the day. We went to Landmannalaugar, the blue lagoon, thingvellir national park and thorsmörk. And of course we spent some time exploring Reykjavik. 

I’m envious of everyone who has ever been to Iceland.

Iceland

Sometimes looking at pictures of or reading about Iceland makes me ache because I want to go there so badly, but I don’t know if I will ever be able to afford the travel expenses. I know there are worse problems to have, but… It hurrrrrts

Icelandic descendants of Vikings singing a hymn in a German train station. They totally need to be on the next Thor soundtrack.

Oh man oh man oh man. 6 guys, and it FILLS THE SPACE. Luck of the architecture - and they know how to pull it off. Nothing is easy making vocal music in a space not built for it. I want to do this kind of thing - randomly perform multipart harmony in public spaces.

And it reminds me of Bjork: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiN_YTyaNtI

My god this is beautiful.

Oh my god, the bass voice is superb.

This makes me feel so many things. Gods, it’s gorgeous and so evocative and wow. I need to find out what hymn this is.

It’s Hear, Heavenly Creator (I don’t know how that’s spelled in Icelandic, and I don’t have the characters on my keyboard for the letters anyway haha).

It’s… old as balls. Like 11th century old.

This is stunning.

Just… so beautiful. You can always count on Icelanders to make something wonderful.

Meanwhile in Iceland. The ice cream truck is on its way!
As posted before, some parts of Iceland experienced some pretty extreme weather this year. The northern parts of the east fjords where I reckon this picture is taken is just melting out of the snow now.

“I think you need to put Icelandic horse heads on the entire band of Sigur Rós.”

You’re right.

Oh my gosh

Sigur Rós - Starálfur, Álafoss

Sigur Rós is one of the best things that has ever happened to music.

Very true

iceland is one of those places where you’ll see a random thumbnail photograph of it and think “that’s iceland” and then you click on it and yup that’s iceland

Yes.

Iceland Timelapse Video

Blue Lagoon in Iceland timelapseDid you know that all of the places featured in this beautiful video is accessible to anyone? These places, including Jökulsárlón, Seljalandsfoss, Dyrhólaey, Foss á Síðu, Svínafellsjökull, Skaftafell, Skógafoss, Hvítserkur, Víkurfjörur and Hekla are all right by Iceland’s main road, the Ring Road or very close by. They are also almost all by the south coast. Imagine what you can find if you venture a bit off the beaten track or finish the ring.

Some people don’t understand why I want to go to Iceland so badly… I think this video could fix that :)

The Spirit of Iceland | Svínafellsjökull glacier, Skaftafell, Southern Iceland, Europe©  www.lichtjahre.eu
Photographer notes:Dramatic cloud sceneries with stray sun light are typical for Iceland. Such unique moods of the light arise from low elevation sunlight not reaching the ground that falls through broken multi-layered cloud decks. This indirect light is causing different hues and light intensities at the surface. The black hills in the background belong to the 330 ft (100 m) high terminal moraine of Svínafellsjökull glacier in Skaftafell, southern Iceland. The moraine is composed out of volcanic breccia eroded by the glacier from the surrounding mountains. The steep ice fall of Svínafellsjökull follows gravity at a speed of 3.3 ft (1 m) per day. Hence, the ice of the bordering glacial lake, that is up to 1.3 ft (40 cm) thick, is steeply piled up at the terminal moraine. This glacial drift of 0.4 inch (1 cm) within 15 minutes causes the ice of the glacier and the ice on the lake to crack constantly under this immense pressure. A multitude of tension cracks form within the ice. This produces a stunning network of parallel aligning white lines. The cracking sounds produced by the drifting ice, the harsh winter conditions at 17°F (-8°C) and chilly winds together with the impressive light situation made this experience on the ice unforgettable. 

This is breathtaking!
