Theo Bosboom - Landmannalaugar after sunset

Landmannalaugar is the colourful heart of Iceland and a popular destination for both tourists and photographers. I visited the area for the first time in 2006 and fell in love with it immediately. This summer I had the chance to go back and to spend one week in the area. Although the weather was typically Icelandic (meaning a lot of rain and wind) and my camping gear (especially my lightweight outdoor matress) was not fully adequate for the cold nights up there (which I know is a stupid mistake after more than 10 trips to Iceland), I enjoyed it thoroughly. This picture was taken from the top of the mountain Blahnukur, from where you have a great view over the area. The light was beautiful, about half an hour after sunset.
