Iceland's Moody Landscape
Driving back to Selfoss after a visit to the charming coastal town of Vik, Iceland's southernmost village, most of the landscape was like much of the rest we'd seen: flat and desolate. So we were surprised when we came across these interesting mounds running next to the road. They looked like a miniature mountain range.

I loved the contrast of the clean white snow against the sharp black peaks. The sun had just set and storm clouds were rolling in, creating a moody, dramatic scene that you could almost feel physically.

On any trip to Iceland, a visit to the beautiful Vik is a must. As an added bonus, you're sure to enjoy the area's unique geological features that you're not likely to see elsewhere in Iceland.
