Iceland has been on my bucket list for destinations within the last few years, until I finally made it in Summer 2018. It is one of the richest natural sceneries I have gotten to witness so far, where shapes and colours are absolutely breathtaking. There seems to be a perfect balance between roughness and a subtle beauty within their endless landscapes. And of course the wonderful ponies that have been living on the Island for over a thousand years have really made my trip and were the main reason for me to visit. They seem to love people and have the happiest vibes I have ever seen in horses so far. They love human beings so much.. that it makes it a little difficult to photograph them, as they come running towards you while your perfect shot is gone before you know it!
The highlands filled with lupins… a reminder that it is Summertime in Iceland!
