The first is lovely, Rajan, but you've kept the best for your blog: Mælifell and Veðurháls II is just stunning.

Absolutely amazing.
The only place in Iceland where I saw colors like that was at Landmannalaugar, which doesn't have the lovely black lava sand as a backdrop.

I assume the green color is from sulfur?

Thank you very much, gentlemen.

Eric - the green is due to moss. It is especially striking on an overcast day after a spell of rainy weather and depending on the direction of the light, the hues change. This area along the Syðra-Fjallabak (South Fjallabak) route is like another planet. Landmannalaugar lies on the Nyrðri-Fjallabak (North Fjallabak) route, an area of red & orange hued rhyolite slopes.

Some of the moss in Iceland is amazing.  Thick as a mattress (ok, a thin mattress...).  You could sleep on it.
