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!
