The Land of Fire and Ice

We have had several friends visit Iceland recently and have enjoyed seeing their images, which are from the spring and summer, although they are completely different than the Iceland that we saw. It is amazing how the time of year that you visit a location can dramatically effect the opinions that you might have of that place. If we could, we would visit places in every season of the year, just to see the differences. What we enjoyed about visiting Iceland in the winter was that it truly illustrated that nickname of the land of fire and ice is truly deserved. This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Hot and/or Cold and watching the geysers erupt on the Golden Circle is a wonderful memory that evokes that wonderful contradiction in our minds. Nature provides such magical experiences.

  2. is anywhere more beautiful? I’m planning a trip but am torn between going in the winter or spring – as you said they offer such different views… Both stunning though 🙂

    We went to Iceland in the summer, but I’d love to go back some winter. I found Reykjavik to be such a cozy city; I think I’d love to curl top there in a coffeeshop for a long weekend! Like you, I wish I could see everywhere at all times of year!
