Reflections On Landmannalaugar
Photograph - Fine Art Photography
The rainbow rock of Landmannalaugar is reflected in a still lake under a cloudy sky, Iceland.
Landmannalaugar is known as the Jewel of Iceland. The area is a land formed by ancient lava fields and extinct volcanoes, the oldest in Iceland. It still steams sulphur. Hundreds of different minerals that were produced by the volcanoes over the centuries give Landmannalaugar its distinctive rainbow colouring, which includes deep oranges, bright greens, sulfurous yellows and even pale blues.
The area lies to the south east of Iceland and is easily accessible from Reykjavik, although only in summer. Winter covers this landscape with thick snow for nine months of the year. In the short three months of summer however, this is a popular hiking area, with thousands of tourists a year walking the Laugavegur trail, a four day hiking trail ending in Porsmork. It's not for the faint of heart though, facilities in the form of small huts are spaced a solid day's walk apart, and conditions can change from warm and sunny to cold and wet very quickly. The hike is through a serene landscape of raw and rugged beauty, unlike anywhere else in the world.
