February Photo Challenge

I haven't taken many photographs this week so I have chosen a few from my holiday in Iceland last summer.

day 19 - horizon
 This is the black sand beach at Vik in southern Iceland. If you look towards the southern horizon from here you will see nothing but sea and over the horizon there is no land mass between Iceland and Antarctica.

day 20 - unexpected
 I had expected Iceland to be very mountainous and there are mountains, but also there are miles and miles of flat glacial sands, very different from the picture I had in my mind.

day 21 - path
For most of our holiday we were on an escorted tour which was a great way of seeing a lot in the time we were there but sometimes I would have liked a little more time to explore. We stopped to look at this moss covered lava which went on for miles and I spotted this little path - a sheep path maybe? If I had more time I would have liked to wander along the path to get a sense of the scale and isolation of the place.

This month I am joining with Tash from Vintage Pretty in the February Photo Challenge.
