Sunrise at Landmannalaugar

A lot has happened since my last post. I temporarily fixed my car and went back to Reykjavík, I had a great time with my parents who visited me for one week and also a great time with my sister and brother in law, who also visited me the week after my parents.

Time goes by so fast and now the highland is almost completely closed due to the upcoming winter and a lot of snow on the roads. This makes me a bit sad because actually I wanted to go back to the highlands once more this year. At least I have some very wonderful memories on my stays in Landmannalaugar one and two weeks ago.

I had to get up early in the morning and hike up a mountain called Blánúkur to get this shot. It was a very unique moment for me. When I woke up I thought that there are too many clouds for a great sunrise. Nevertheless I decided to try it and was finally rewarded for my efforts. On my way to the top of the mountain the sun broke through the clouds for about three or four minutes and bathed the land and the mountains around me in magical light.
