Life goes by so fast that we often forget to freeze the moment, to appreciate the little things, to be thankful for the fresh air we breathe and to be proud to be part of this beautiful planet we live on! Live in now and once you learn to appreciate the little things, life can be like a dream! • • • #iceland #icelandtravel #reykjanes #voyaged #reykjanespeninsula #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #allaboutadventures #discoverearth #beautifuliceland #ourlonelyplanet #discoverearth #adventureawaits #forgeyourownpath #wondermore #speechlessplaces #cntraveler #outdoortones #beautifuldestinations #wildernessculture #stayandwander #createcommune #visualsoflife @iceland @iceland.explore @icelandair

Brimketill, which translates to “whitewater caudron”, is a natural pool of lava rock carved by marine erosion. I loved how everything in Iceland had a name and story. According to local folklore, the basin used to be owned by a giantess named Oddný. It’s easy to picture her bathing or washing her clothes in the dead of night while the mighty ocean waves splash over the pool. This was my last stop before heading to the airport, and my hat blew off my head and landed on the rocks - the only thing I lost on this trip, mere minutes before driving to the airport! I felt bad for accidentally littering but I didn’t want to risk climbing down onto the rocks. My hat coincidentally blended in with the gray lava stones (swipe to see where it landed). I think that Oddny will wear it, maybe she claimed it! * * * * #reykjanespeninsula #brimketill #iceland #travel #nature #icelandtravel #photography #travelphotography #landscape #icelandic #travelgram #wanderlust #visiticeland #exploreiceland #naturephotography #landscapephotography #roadtrip #wheniniceland 🇮🇸❄️ #adventure #instatravel #icelandscape #canon #explore #earthoutdoors #solotravel

That was his home. That small island off the coast of Reykjanes Peninsula is Eldey, home to large number of bird species, including one of the biggest gannet colonies in the world. The island was also home of the last remnant population of Great Auk (Pinguinus Impennis), before they were hunted and become extinct in 1844. Here a bronze Great Auk sculpture, created by artist Todd McGrain for his Lost Bird Project, memorializes the extinct bird. #greatauk #pinguinusimpennis #eldey #reykjanespeninsula #reykjanesgeopark #satellitetales #minimaliceland #minimal_iceland #minimal_phototrip #exploreglobe #exploreobserveshare #documentingspace #lostbirdproject #somewheretravel #paperjournalmag #earthcapture #ig_iceland #ig_northen #ig_europe #icelandsouthcoast #icelandroadtrip #icelandnature #wheniniceland #guidetoiceland #somewheremagazine

Back in Iceland after a few days in Dublin catching up with family and friends. It’s always nice to get some perspective on the life I’m building here when I leave and can view it from the outside - reminds me how much I love my friends and career in Reykjavik! It’s also so comforting to visit home and have a ridiculous amount of tea and chats with people I love 💗 I think this is possibly my favourite shot I’ve taken this summer, thanks to an amazing team 😁 👗 @juliemolgaardjensen 💋 @stylist_makeupartist_ 👯‍♀️ @magdalenagudmunds and Elisabeth . #ferðavefurmbl

Iceland is for lovers...of all things natural and wild. This is near one of the 30 active volcanic sites on the island, in Krysuvik, a part of the Reykjanes Nature Preserve. This lake was luke warm, but a half mile up the road there were bubbling mud pots. Sections of the walkway had even been closed to tourists, citing temperatures around 100°C (212°F). Yikes, don’t fall in! . . 1/80s 28mm f/3.5 ISO 100 PolarPro ND/CPL 8

Just few km from Reykjavík is Krýsuvík/Trölladyngju volcano system. The system is in Reykjanes peninsula; 55km long, 13km wide and cover over 300km3. You find so many structures; craters, rifts, cracks, caves and of course lava. Last eruption was 1151 and 1188, a 25km crater row opened east side near Trölladyngju and lava coverd big area near Hafnarfjörður. Large earthquakes followed these eruptions and were recorded in Flateyjarbók and Konungsannál. #lava #lavalove #reykjanespeninsula #reykjanes #eruption #cave #lavacave #crater #flateyjarbók #lostiniceland #lovemycountry #geology #explorer #lavalady #nature #justnature #dogslover #trölladyngja #dog #dogsofinstagram #geologist #iceland #exploring

Голубая лагуна - уникальное место отдыха в Исландии. Геотермальная вода лагуны - это сочетание пресной воды и воды из океана, в составе которой находятся различные минералы, водоросли (algae), улучшающие выработку коллагена, что делает кожу более гладкой, молодой, но главным образом - кремний (silica) - белая грязь, имеющая лечебные свойства, улучшающие кожный барьер. Максимальная глубина лагуны до 1,5 м., температура воды: 38-40 градусов. Когда температура опускается, повышается концентрация кремния, образуется целебная белая кашица. Она и используется посетителями в лечебных целях и является «цементом» для дна лагуны. Поскольку лагуну посещают около 300 тыс. человек в год, купающиеся, естественно, интересуется, насколько безопасно купаться в такой воде. Во-первых, научно доказано, что бактерии не выживают в воде такого состава, во-вторых, вода обновляется достаточно быстро - 40 часов требуется лагуне, чтобы полностью обновить воду. В лагуне вы услышите характерный звук (мне напоминал срежет цепи) - это новая вода поступает в лагуну из глубины 2 тыс. метров.  Голубовато белый цвет воды, которой в лагуне немалым 9 млн. литров, является результатом воздействия солнечного света на кремний! Подробнее о лагуне по ссылке http://voloshinova.ru/Reykjanes (есть в шапке профиля) #PS_Исландия #Исландия #Iceland #visiticeland #путешествие #блогопутешествиях #кудапоехать #instatraveller #travelling #travelblogger #голубаялагуна #bluelagoon #reykjavik #geothermalspa #Рейкьявик #ReykjanesPeninsula #amazingplaces #aroundtheworld #visiting

(❄️💧💦) Blue Lagoon video edit w/Bae!!!❤️❤️❤️ #GeothermalSpa #Grindavík #ReykjanesPeninsula #iceland The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa in southwestern Iceland. The spa is located in a lava field near Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in a location favourable for geothermal power, and is supplied by water used in the nearby Svartsengi geothermal power station. The Blue Lagoon is approximately 20 km (12 mi) from Keflavík International Airport, and is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. #bluelagoon #bluelagooniceland #hotsprings #travelinfluencer #travelphotography #discovericeland #exploreiceland #getlostclub #passportpassion #adventurephotography #wildernessbabes #adventurethatislife #glaciernationalpark #glacierlake #travelgram #beautiful #beautifulearth #wheniniceland #travelmore #earthshots #adventurephotography #couplesgoals @trinaelizabeth_

ICELAND SERIES (11): Close-up of a silica-mud-coated lava rock In one of the quiet pools adjacent to the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa in S.W.Iceland. (see immediately preceding posts). The water appears milky blue (the intensity depending on the amount of blue sky relative to the cloud cover) because of its high silica content. Bathing in the 37-39 degree heat and applying the soft white silica-mud on the skin was a magical and memorable experience as was the cooling off walk around these beautiful side-pools afterwards.
