Moods of Autumn

Frozen World

One of the most photogenic region of Iceland totally changes its character in mid winter. Seen in summer the green and mountainous Skaftafell area along with Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon becomes a frozen world of ice and snow in winter. I have been going there more frequently in winter the last couple of years. Here is …
