Just north of the Malarrif Lighthouse in Snæfellsjökull National Park ( West Iceland), stands the highly textured Purkhóll Crater, which is set against a foreground of the bright green and yellow moss covered Drangahraun Lava Fields.
Route 1 or The Ring Road is the major national road of Iceland. The 1,332 kilometres (828 mi) road weaves around the perimeter of the country playing host to an amazing array of landscapes and connecting the vast majority of the inhabited areas. This image was taken approaching Gloppufjall in northeast Iceland near Hörgársveit.
The Grjótagjá Cave in Lake Mývatn of Iceland was once the home of outlaw Jón Markússon in the early 1700's. This lava cave and hot spring with its ethereal otherworldly beauty also played host to the Game of Thrones love scene between Jon Snow and the wildling woman Ygritte, where Jon Snow ‘proves’ his abandonment of the Night’s Watch by consummating their relationship.
