Glacier Lagoon … Iceland Trip – Part 4 …

Glacier Lagoon Pano 1Hey everyone … so this is the next part of our Iceland trip … I fell in love with the Glacier Lagoon … it was just so pretty and the ice was a brilliant blue colour … (click to see the panorama larger) …

There was one floating lump of glacier ice that looked like it was glowing green on the inside …

I was quite disappointed but at the same time enjoyed taking more photos back at the lagoon … and I also got one of my favourite photos from the whole trip in the car on the way back to the Lagoon … (see above) …

I tell you the gusts that day were probably the strongest we had come across on the whole trip …

We had some really pretty snow drifts on the way back home … and even a couple white outs which were a little nerve wracking …
