The wild side. One of the coolest things about the country is the presence of hot and cold. The juxtaposition of a warm, volcanic Earth covered in ice, with the driving rain and chilly air above. Iceland has harnessed that heat, and turned it into a way stay warm in this chilly climate. This is the part of our trip that was only accessible by a two-lane road that is often wet or icy. Passing a truck is no joke. Bridges are one lane.
The things we saw on leg two were bucket list-worthy, holy crap things. We munched on ice from the lagoon of a glacier that covers eight percent of the country. We saw some of the angriest waves ever. And we learned the photographing Iceland is HARD. So much contrast. Black sand, bright sky. We’ll start at the Myrdalsjokull Glacier near the town of Vik, where scene from Rogue One were filmed!
