A Mývatn Dream

These are photographs from the volcanic region of Mývatn in northern Iceland.

In the first image, the peaks of Námafjall are circumscribed by a section of the Ring Road. Steam is seen rising from vents in the earth in this highly active geothermal area.

One evening around sundown we stumbled into a dreamscape as a blanket of fog settled over Mývatn. The timing was fortuitous – we were already on top of Dalfjall as the luscious scene unfolded.
