Snæfell, Highlands of Iceland
On route from East towards North Iceland we passed through the highlands around Snæfell. The weather was not the best so we where not expecting much. This small creek with very very green moss was a pleasant surprise. It is such a contrast to the otherwise barren and dark highland deserts that it seems like it is not real. I dont know why it is so green but I do know it is a good foreground element in a photograph. The overcast and sometimes rainy weather actually helped here as the wetness enhanced the color of the moss and the overcast weather offered soft light even in the middle of the day.
