Fantastic photos! I love the way the photographer has captured the wild rugged beauty of Iceland! Simply breathtaking!

I've been there to visit and we went to one of those hot geysirs. The guide had brought fresh eggs, and he put them in the boiling water of the geysir. Ten minutes later and voilá, we had hardboiled eggs for lunch!

I loved going there, and will for sure go back again some time.
