Bravo! The first two shots transform Iceland into a tropical island with that stunning light. The third one is also a beauty.

These are gorgeous, Rajan!

Remembering Myvatn in June, 1974, I had guessed these might be taken during the winter, when the midges aren't as bad. Than I checked your blog.
Does Sandvatn also have midges, and is September late enough for them not to bother too much?

Thank you, gentlemen.

Eric - as I recall, there were no midges at Sandvatn. Typically by late Fall, their numbers decrease significant from the peak in June/July.

Gorgeous!  I was stationed in Iceland for a few years during the 90s and your photos bring me back to that wonderful time.
