I very much like the second, monochrome one, but (as usual) both are superb.

Yes it's the second for me also.

Lots of photographers (including me most of the time) are too afraid to let the sky contain little to no detail, but your image shown here Rajan, proves beyond doubt that on occasion, doing so can work really well.

Bravo!

+1.

It just needs two more shots to complete the seasons.   ;)

Thank you, gentlemen.

Dave - Indeed. There are those who feel a compulsive need for 'drama' in the sky. I am not one of them  :).

Eric - What 4 shots? Iceland has only two seasons: cold and colder.

Francois, Paulo, Kers - thank you.

Kers - yes, Svartafell is seen from Bakkagerði, as the village in Borgarfjörður Eystri is called.

Beautiful images.  I like them both... I would have a hard time choosing.

That's what we experienced in '74 in the south.
But for a brief period in Akureyri it was actually warm! People were walking around in shirtsleeves, for about one day late June.
Then normality returned, and we had to don our Icelandic sweaters and down parkas again.

I was there in the year 2000... and did the round trip with my old car...
But as you show me there is a lot to see outside this basic route, so there is still a chance to escape from the (other) tourists...
In the year 2000 only the geyser was crowded ... with see 'europe in one week' travelers.
Would like to go there with snow... and then see some of the large waterfalls...

Indeed, there is much to explore away from the main routes, on tracks accessible to bigger vehicles. And as you may know, the area in and around Borgarfjörður Eystri offers tremendous hiking opportunities.
