The Road East

As We continued East, we had every intention of grabbing that iconic shot at Stokksnes, you know, the with the monuds of grass and earth in the foreground and the mountain range in the background? Nope. we missed it altogether. Instead, we got up close and personal with the mountain,

The shots are in chronological order, and you can see how everything becomes more blue as the light fades. On the other side of the tunnel, we found still pools of water and beautiful reflections. And a rock, which i climbed.

The road east takes us comfortably into the East Fjords, where we settle down for the night in a repurposed church. It was very cold in the church,  but the keeper was able to heat it enough in the hour before we arrived. We collected our thoughts in the evening and signed the guest book, exhausted and delighted.

Crossing Over

Crossing over from crystal is the source of the "crystals" from said beach: Jökulsarlon, or the glacial lagoon.  It doesnt matter how many times one goes there. its never the same lagoon. The sun rises behind you as you face the lagoon, and as it sets from the west, the low sun refracts through the blacks of Ice to spectacular effect.

You will have to imagine all of that for right now, beacause Frank and I were not so luckcy when we arrived. after our spectacular sunrise on crystal beach, the clouds came over and that was that. Here are results of our endeavours.
