Gönguleið um Fimmvörðuháls aka The Trail of Eruption
A stunning 22km long trail starting at the infamous Skogafoss in Iceland's southern region ending in Þórsmörk boasts some of the most gorgeous views in Iceland.
Icelandic Horse - Up Close and Personal
Gorgeous, kind and curious. As soon as you stop your car near their fences, the whole group will come running over to greet you.
Took this shot using my D810 and the 14-24.
Sunset on the Snaefellsness Peninsula
Shot with my 50mm 1.8. I was very surprised at how capable that lens turned out to be for ~$200! In comparison to my other spend, this has easily surpassed its worth by flying colours.

Capture during a 20km hike in Landmannalaugar
A little closer look using a 70-200mm lens vs. the 50mm previously.
They're not horses... they're super-models
Someone has money...
I'm not going to say where I found this house, but it was in the middle of nowhere on a mountain F road and caught me off-guard. I did not at all expect to see a home like this right off of the crazy banged up road.
Camp Hut - Snaefellsness Peninsula
Leaving the Snaefellsness we came across this cool mountain hut seated appropriately against a gorgeous mountain.... go figure.
The reason why I loved having a 4x4 at my disposal is the ability to move away from nice paved roads to more adventurous mountain roads in Iceland. F208 (standing right behind us) to Landmannalaugar presented us with the most alien scenery I had ever witnessed.
There were very few safe places to stop, and to be quite frank... you'd have to be an idiot to stop on that road as you'd be risking your life and others.
Sunset and... Sheep.
These blasted sheep are everywhere and will sit either next to the road or right on it. Take extreme care while driving and keep an vigilant eye out for these guys.
Lava Fields and Colourful Rhyolite Mountains
Taken in Landmannalaugar.
Looking into Gljúfrafoss
One of the neatest freaking waterfalls I have ever witnessed.
Looking out of Gljúfrafoss
After exploring Gljúfrafoss up close and personal, I made my way out and was presented with this beautiful sunrise at 3am...
An insane sunrise in Dyrhólaey at 3:15am.
Reynisfjara and the Reynisdrangar
A view of the Reynisfjara and the Reynisdrangar from Dyrholaey where the Puffins are nesting.

Laugavegur Hiking Trail
... well at least that's a small part of it.
Depending on your pace it can take anywhere between 3 - 5 days to complete the entire Laugavegur trail as it stretches 55km to Þórsmörk's breathtaking view of valleys, mountains and glacial rivers.
