On the way east through the black desert, the Vatnajökull glacier lay in the distance. Between us and the glacier was a vast desert valley with only a few old craters rising from the plain. These pictures show once again how … read more or write a comment …

I had this lake on my wish list ever since I found it on google maps. Because of the color, I have to admit I really wanted to use the drone to capture it from an aerial perspective. The riverbed … read more or write a comment …
